In this lesson we looked at the different technological parts that can create an Arduino machine. After placing them out o the table we went through what every parts purpose was and what it could do. Once we had looked at the technology Gareth then showed us a quick method to creating a flashing light on the Arduino board.
To create the flashing light we opened up the Arduino software and selected the board we where using.
After selecting the board we then selected the ‘file’ tab and then sleet the ‘basics’ option within the ‘examples’ menu. after doing this we selected the ‘Blink’ function.
Once we had selected the blink function we then saved and uploaded the code to the software where the device could read it.
