Weekly Blog One (Ryan Sepe)

Last week one of the small projects we had to do was build a simple circuit that involved LED’s and a button. We also soldered together  a battery connector or the basic circuit. First we had to take apart the plug thing that is used to plug into the Arduino so we .could get assess to the soldering points in the plug. Then we had to rout the wires through the other part of the plug and putt it back together.For the circuit we had to wire up five LED’s and a button and program the LED’s to work with the button. We had four colored LED’s and one white LED that we wired to a bread board and then to an Arduino. We made the color lights stay on while the button is held down and the white light blink ever half second. We then used the previously made battery power cord to power the Arduino.
