"Getting Started with Arduino: Exploring LEDs" is an exciting and comprehensive class that explores advanced concepts in Arduino programming and circuit design. Participants will learn how to create captivating lighting effects by fading LEDs, randomize blink patterns for dynamic displays, work with parallel LED circuits for synchronized lighting, and utilize RGB LEDs to generate a spectrum of colors.
Furthermore, the class will cover parallel LED circuits, where multiple LEDs are connected to the same Arduino board. Students will explore the concept of current sharing and learn how to properly wire and control multiple LEDs simultaneously. They will discover how to create synchronized or independent blink patterns across multiple LEDs, opening up possibilities for dynamic and visually engaging lighting displays.
Through hands-on exercises and projects, students will gain practical experience in wiring and programming these components, enabling them to create visually stunning and interactive Arduino-based systems. This class expands the creative possibilities of Arduino, equipping participants with the skills to design projects ranging from ambient lighting installations to eye-catching visual displays. Join this class and bring your Arduino projects to life with fading LEDs, random blink patterns, parallel circuits, and vibrant RGB lighting effects.
