Use Python to add Multiple Servos to Your Self-watering Plant

This project will let you add an servo motor controller to your self-watering micro:bit project. The servo can be used to raise a flag or some sort of sign to indicate the status of your plant, and can even be located a few metres away from your self-watering plant!

The project can be run as a group activity, with one person programming the first micro:bit and their lab partner programming the second micro:bit. Alternatively, one person could program both micro:bits by having separate code in tabs within mu or Thonny editors.
