Project: Servo Greeter

Make a servo-powered greeter with Arduino! The Servo Greeter In this project, you’re going to be using an Arduino and micro servo motor to create a waving popsicle stick arm. You’re going to make the basic ‘skeleton’ which can then be extended into several other fun projects! Base Activity This fun and flexible Arduino project […]

Project: Blink Recode

Practicing With Variables Now that you’ve been introduced to variables it’s time to begin implementing them in your code. Variables provide a degree of flexibility and control that will completely level up your programming skills! After completing this activity you’ll be expected to use variables in all of your Arduino projects (where appropriate). Blink Recode! […]

arduino LED noise monitor DHF example

LED Noise Monitor

LED Noise Monitor This project combines all of the Arduino skills developed throughout this workshop. You’ll be using a microphone to monitor background noise, such as in a classroom or learning space, and then light various LEDs based on the noise level. This is a fun, visual project that demonstrates how an Arduino¬†shines powering interactive […]

Arduino-At-Heart

Project: Blinking and Beyond

Blinking and Beyond You’ve already set up your Arduino board and the uploaded the basic, introductory Blink sketch. This sketch is considered the “Hello World” of Arduino. However, now it’s time to dig into the code and make some modifications. Base Activity Make an LED blink! This is the first activity for nearly everyone who […]

rgb mixer arduino and breadboard

Project: RGB Mixer

RGB Mixer This project takes your RGB LED and potentiometer skills to the next level! The RGB Mixer is a literal example of mixing the Red, Green, and Blue values of the RGB LED. You’ll use three potentiometers as input knobs to control the Red, Green, and Blue values. The position of each knob controls […]

Theremin Circuit Diagram

Basic Theremin

Basic Theremin For this project, you’ll be creating a basic theremin! The theremin is a musical instrument that can be controlled without any physical contact! The theremin typically has one or two antennas that detect the hand position of the performer. The hand movement and position then controls one or more oscillators that are usually […]

Traffic Light Fritzing Diagram

Traffic Light

Traffic Light Now that you’ve practiced setting up (and controlling) multiple LEDs on a breadboard, it’s time to create a variation of a traffic light! There are two versions of this project. Make sure you try both! The template sketch that you’ll be using for this project contains some logic errors. The code works but […]

Experimenting with Arduino: Multiple LEDs Diagram

Traffic Light – multi variable ?

Multiple LEDs on a Breadboard Now that you’ve integrated a breadboard into your project, it’s time to level up and attach multiple LEDs! When trying to work with multiple LEDs without a breadboard you may have encountered a key difficulty: How do you make the LEDs share a single GND pin on the Arduino? This […]

Blink Recode

Practicing with Variables Now that you’ve been introduced to variables it’s time to begin implementing them in your code. Variables provide a degree of flexibility and control that will level up your programming skills. After completing this activity you should try to use variables in all future projects. Blink Recode! Variables make your code much […]
