A basic assignment you may want to do with your students is the wiring of an LED to a button. This helps to illustrate the flow of electricity, shows them how to use a button and gives the a little control over the circuit. As simple as it is, they’ll enjoy being able to see the LED light up when they click the button. You can challenge those students that are ahead of the group to help others with their wiring or to try wiring up two, three, four or more LEDs.
This activity is an extremely simple one that incorporates a few ideas:
1) buttons for input
2) making creative models out of creations
3) basics of wiring up an LED
4) Coding/loading code onto Arduino from computer. Continue reading “Arduino Project – Spaceship Console”
