I am a science teacher and am interested in building a timer utilizing photoelectric sensors to start the timer and record 4 times as the the remaining four sensors are tripped. The 4 recorded times could either be displayed on a screen or written to a downloadable file to an application like Excel.
First, is this something doable with the Arduino board? Second, would someone with little programming experience but a lot of motivation (me) be able to figure it out?
Thanks for any responses!
