To construct this you will need

  • LEGO Mindstorms EV3 45560 Education Resource
  • LEGO Mindstorms EV3 45544 Education Core

Arduino Basic Course. Blinking diode working as a result of the module

Why: It's an easy and fun example to introduce you to Arduino

How: Presenting questions and trying answer this questions. Experimenting with different tasks.

What: We would like to show you how to control a diode. We would build a device and write programs for this device.

End Result: A blinking diode

Arduino Basic Course. Constructing your first blinking diode device

You have the controller, you have the diode. The controller has a number of pins (holes). Where should you put the diode so that it starts blinking? 

The small holes on the controller are called pins. On our controller we have 32 pins. The more pins that you have, the more elements you can controller with this microcontroller. For this video the interesting pins and 13 and GND
