What You’ll Get:
The kit will include everything you need, including the addressable LEDs, electronic components, microcontroller, battery, connectors, and project enclosure - a $50 value of hand-picked items by Natasha.
What You’ll Make:
You will put together all the components to make an addressable LED light stick that you can connect to your bike or anywhere you want!
You’ll Learn How To:
- Correctly connect the circuit components
- Connect your microcontroller to your computer
- Download and interact with Arduino Software
- Upload example code to your lights
- Customize the code and your light animations
- Expand upon your creation
This class is meant to be a very brief introduction to Arduino, Addressable LEDs, working with Circuits and making something creative! From adding many more LEDs to diving deeper into the animations and code, there are many places to explore! Stay tuned for more classes on these topics, or let us know what you want to learn.
