Scientific principles illustrated

This WiFi-enabled Weather Station STEM Electronics Kit provides a hands-on learning experience in several scientific and technical areas. Here are some of the skills and knowledge that can be gained from assembling and working with this kit...

Electronics Assembly

The kit involves the assembly of various electronic components, including printed circuit boards (PCBs), a display module, a voltage regulator chip, capacitors, a flick switch, and an ESP8266 WiFi module. Some of these components are a step above the more basic electronic components, such as resistors and transistors. These help to broaden perspectives on the range of components that are available to the electronic engineer. The inclusion of pre-built modules, such as the WiFi module, increases awareness that many electronics functions can be built into a device quickly with readily-available mini-circuits. This knowledge can assist aspiring electronic device inventors in expanding their ideas, encouraging them to think about how this myriad of components can be pieced together to achieve a desired effect.

Soldering Skills

Develop intricate soldering skills, which are crucial for electronics repair and prototyping your own electronics inventions or creations. This kit includes through-hole components and integrated circuits (IC's) which lay the foundation for moving onto more advanced electronics projects. It also requires some surface mount device (SMD) soldering, which adds to the challenge.

Circuit Design and Understanding

Working with multiple PCBs and integrated circuits provides an opportunity to understand circuit design and how different components interact to create a functional device. Users will get to see how a vast amount of electronics technology can be condensed into miniature components that are smaller than a fingernail.

IoT (Internet of Things)

The ESP-015 WiFi module and the ability to connect to the internet make this kit a practical introduction to basic Internet of Things (IoT) concepts. Users will learn how to configure the device to fetch and display real-time weather data from the internet.

Troubleshooting and Problem-Solving

Assembling and programming the weather station may involve overcoming challenges, fostering troubleshooting and problem-solving skills. Diagnosing circuit problems is one of the core skills of an electronics enthusiast. It can be extremely satisfying for an aspiring electronic engineer when they identify and resolve an issue that is preventing a device from functioning properly.

Data Display and User Interface Design

Designing and switching between different interfaces on the OLED display involves understanding user interface design principles and programming the display to showcase relevant information.

WiFi Networking Concepts

The inclusion of the WiFi module introduces users to basic concepts of WiFi networking, including connectivity setup and real-time data updates.

Aesthetics and Design

The clear acrylic case and the design considerations in making the device visually appealing introduce concepts related to aesthetics and design in electronics.


Overall, this STEM electronics kit provides a comprehensive learning and skills-development experience, touching on various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines and facilitating the development of a deeper understanding of electronics concepts.

Kit Météo

Kit fonctionnel - Rien à signaler facile de montage et facile à programmer avec un IPhone
Suggestion : intégrer un capteur température et humidité local avec affichage local

Thanks again Philippe for your review and for your suggestions for improvements - we'll definitely share these suggestions with our developer team, as I agree, measurement of local temperature and humidity through additional sensors would be a fantasitic upgrade to this kit. We recently updated the instructions for this product which you might find useful - there is a bit more information and guidance on configuration for other cities, although it sounds that you have figured it out quite well by yourself. Best reagards!

Good introduction to IoT

Nice introduction to Internet of Things (IoT) which is important if you're looking to create electronic devices that use bluetooth, WiFi, or other connectivity modes. Finished device looks cool and serves a useful function.

Good kit

Very nice kit, since a lot of the components are pre-assembled modules, the soldering part of making it up takes less than an hour. Little bit tricky to set your location, but you only have to set it once, then it auto-locates after that. Forecast pretty much matches what you see on weather.com and other weather sites.

Nifty kit

My son who is 11 was able to assemble this with a little help from his dad. He really enjoyed it and it works great - he keeps it beside his bed now so he can see what the weather is going to be like next day... roll on the summer.

Awesome

Pretty Little weather station to build yourself. All the parts are there, everything is well explained and given assembly plan with it. Works great too!
