we started a project called Arduino. It is like the hummingbird but it has more complexities. The kit includes:
- Battery and negative (black cord) and positive (red cord) cords
- Lots of cords that can connect to transfer energy to other parts of the Arduino kit.
- Bread board
- Arduino board
Facts that I have learnt about Arduino:
If you don’t put the resister in the board with a LED the LED will blow up and the resister keeps the current of electricity
Warm up challenges:
Our first challenge was to make a LED light up .The reason why we did this was to get an idea of how the bread board work in the Arduino kit because the bread board it a circuit.
Challenge 2 was where we started to use the bread board and we were trying to make a circuit using the LED and making it light up using the board.
Comes out of the battery then out of the negative then into the resister then to the LED then to the positive then to the battery.While doing this project on the Arduino app we went to file, examples, 0.1 basics, then blink and it got me onto the program for the LED to blink. What my partner and I found happened when we were doing this was that on the Arduino there is a orange flashing key. It goes on for 1 second then off for 1. When our light was working it aromatically flashed and we didn’t have to press the restart button (when you press the reset button the light franticly flashes then goes off) and it flashed the same time the orange light flashed then off when the orange light went off.
When the orange light is on.
When the orange light is off.
Challenge 2 was to make your LED flash ONLY when you touch the button. To get to the program for this challenge we went to file, example, 0.2 basic then to button. When we touched the button the light wouldn’t turn on, then we moved the resistor a little and it turned on when we touched the button. In this challenge we are adding to challenge 1.
today we started challenge 6 this was a complete…………………………………………flop
we tried every single way it wouldn’t work but it just wouldn’t fix
so Mr Mackie sayed to move on so we did
we tried challenge 7 but this was a flop too. we tried to fix it but it just wouldn’t fix
