What is a pin header for?

Hi,

The learning material says, that I have to put a 2 pin hearder in every corner of my breadboard, but it doesn’t say why. What use have that 2 pin hearders in the corners of my breadboard?

Thanks!

Thanks! Do they ever have an electronic function? What are they usually for?

Often used on PCBs' for making connections to other PCB's or for plugging in wires or connectors.
