Hi! During this pandemic with the lockdown, we will teach you how to make things with Arduino! If you have a small electronics kit that you’ve haven’t used in years or months, and you want to learn arduino, then here are quick guides!
You wouldn’t need any software, because we will use our Arduino for power.
But you will need the following items:
1: An Arduino UNO R3
2: Jumper wires
3: A serial cable or 9-volt battery adapter with battery
4: An LED
5: Breadboard (Medium or Large)
Start by connecting a red wire to 5V and a blue one to GND.
Hint:(5V and GND is in the pin headers labeled “POWER”)
Connect these wires to your small breadboard. If you have a big one, put connect them to the power buses with lines colored red and blue.
Next, get your LED but make sure it works. Put the long lead, the “cathode” on the row where the red wire is. Place the short lead “anode” into the 3rd row, not on the GND row. Put a wire on the row the anode was, and place another wire on the GND row. Once you do that, connect the two wires to a spoon or a fork and the LED should turn on!
