What They Will Learn
Mood Lamp Project
01 - Mood Lamp
This project will show you how to build a lamp that changes colors and only turns on when it is dark. (We’re still not quite sure if the lamp controls your mood or the other way around
1.1 - Arduino IDE Setup
1.2 - Intro to Prototyping with a Breadboard (Fresh and Gluten Free)
1.3 - My First Sketch (No Pencil Necessary)
1.4 - Sine Waves and Algorithms, the sky’s the limit!
Memory Game Project
02 - Memory Game
This project will help you build a fun game that challenges your memory recall of randomly-generated sequences of multi-colored LEDs.
2.1 - Using Multiple Inputs and Outputs (I/O, I/O, it’s off to code I go.)
2.2 - Randomizing Outputs
2.3 - Using Arrays
2.4 - Generating Sounds – Frequency Manipulation
Distance Detector Project
03 - Distance Detector
This project will help you use an ultrasonic sensor to detect the distance of an object.
(Yes, you too can be Batman (or Batwoman)!)
3.1 - Detecting Variable Input Values
3.2 - Using the Serial Monitor (Has nothing to do with breakfast food)
3.3 - Inferring Hardware Configuration by Analyzing the Code
LED Dice Game Project
04 - LED Dice Game
This project will simulate the random roll of a die. (Not to be used for gambling in back allies.)
4.1 - Level 2 Wiring
4.2 - Coding Challenge
4.3 - Using IF/ ELSE
Optical Theremin Project
05 - Optical Theremin
“Throw your hands in the air and wave ‘em like you just don’t care!”
By simply waving your hand over the sensors you will learn how to create music.
5.1 - Using a Potentiometer
5.2 - Using a Light Dependent Resistor (aka Photoresistor, not someone who hates getting their picture taken)
2-Player Reflex Game Project
06 - 2-Player Reflex Game
The modern equivalent of a gunslinger duel. This game will see who among your friends
has the fastest reflexes and survives to live another day. (Not officially endorsed by Duran Duran.)
6.1 - Downloading Code
6.2 - Using a Floating Pin (Not a bowling pin)
6.3 - Using Pulldown and Pullup Resistors
6.4 - Level 2 Functions
6.5 - Using Numbers & Variables in Functions
Weather Station Project
07 - Weather Station
This project will show you how to make a device capable of measuring temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure and then calculating the heat index and altitude
7.1 - Using Specialty Sensors/ Circuits
7.2 - #Using #Libraries (#aka. #Code #Repositories)
7.3 - Interpreting Inputs to Calculate Related Values
Audio Visualizer Project
08 - Audio Visualizer
This project will help you create a display that will represent the volume level of your music. (Play that funky music, DJ!)
8.1 - Controlling an Array of LEDs
8.2 - Smart LEDs (aka Neopixels)
8.3 - Using the Interrupt Command
Lock Box Project
09 - Lock Box
This project will show you how to make an alarm that will sound if your lockbox is open without first entering the correct code.
9.1 - Adding an LCD Screen
9.2 - Using Boolean Values (Zero Shades of Gray.)
9.3 - Using a Matrix Keypad
9.4 - Level 2 Resistor Values
Digital Multimeter Project
10 - Digital Multimeter
Want to know how much life is left in that battery? How about whether or not your wires are connected properly?
10.1 - Ohm’s Law (Voltages, and Resistance, and Currents, oh my!)
10.2 - Voltage Divider Circuits (Something you just can’t resist.)
Handeheld Balance Game Project
11 - Handheld Balance Game
Do you have nerves like steel or will a light breeze knock you down? The project you build this month will give you the answer. (Steady as she goes and full steam ahead!)
11.1 - Using and Accelerometer
11.2 - Coordinates and X / Y axes (No, were not chopping down trees)
11.3 - Using the “Get” Command
11.4 - Advanced: Change variables to increase difficulty.
Strength Gauge Project
12 - Strength Gauge
Are you more like Vin Diesel or Vin Weasel? This project will have you guessing no longer.
12.1 - Using a Strain Gauge
12.2 - Using an Amplifier Circuit
12.3 - Using a Servo MotorAdvanced: Keep track of the high score.
