The first week fared well. My partner Nina and myself were able to complete all the assignments. I learned how to solder (successfully) as well as the basics for using the arduino and breadboard in wiring. For the soldering, we simply had to create a power source and plug. No issues we faced during this assignment. We also had to create a circuit that involved 5 LEDs, resistors, and a button along with the arduino. The only issues we faced were simple wiring mistakes that failed to complete the circuit correctly. The solution was simply to check the order and adjust anything that was interfering.
