These three weeks 5C are doing Arduino programming and it was great! Here is a picture of what the pieces looked like.
Some of them were really confusing like the resisters and the button and something else I don’t know the name of. We were to get into groups of three or four I was with Eve and Lexie. I was so excited to start!
Then we got a box of Arduino and started. The first thing that we made was a battery powering the breadboard through to the LED with a resister. This is what it looked like…..
That one was quite cool but as I went on I found out more and more about circuits and how electricity flows. The next one that we did was with the Arduino Uno board that gives the power to the breadboard and then to what ever is on the breadboard like an LED. On that one we had two wires one red and the other one black and then we had an red LED inline with the two wires like in this picture…..
The one after that got a lot more advanced. It had a button, a red LED, two resisters and six wires. It was quite hard to make but we got there in the end as you can see. I got really excited at this point! This is what it was meant to look like.
Then it got so much more advanced I had to use a square thing that has a round top and that turns around and it looks so cool but it doesn’t do very much though.We got the light to work though! Here is what it looked like.
We did one more and we had to make a light scroll it was so hard though because the light wouldn’t turn on! I made a video about it with Eve and Lexie. Here watch it! And here is the photo!
