This chapter presents three electronics-based projects at increasing levels of sophistication. Two of the projects use the PIC microcontroller-based MicroMite chip. One uses the new Raspberry Pi PICO microcontroller board. All three deliver base level units that monitor atmospheric pressure (Projects 1 and 2) and ambient light levels (Project 3). All three communicate bidirectionally with an app on an Android mobile phone via the popular and well supported Bluetooth protocols. In the final technical section of the chapter, the content of those Bluetooth communications are ‘pushed' onto a local IoT intranet design. The chapter closes with a brief summary of the STEAM initiatives in Australia plus a brief discussion of the importance of electronics in contemporary life which arguably justifies their inclusion in STEAM curricula content.
