We are very excited to welcome Maker Board in the codebender family!
Designed by Let’s Start Coding, Maker Board is ideal for introducing more people to coding via hands-on projects that can take place at home, in the classroom, in camps or clubs.
In this tutorial we will use one strip with 8 RGB LEDs with the Arduino uno board. We will use the Adafruit’s NeoPixel library to change the color of each led.
Let’s get started!
For this project you will need:
We are thrilled to welcome Sparki in the codebender family!
Sparki is an open source Arduino powered robot which is ideal for learning electronics, programming and robotics, all in one. With the mission to help you learn with robots, ArcBotics created an affordable and easy to use beginner robot that comes with a great variety of accessories and more that 100 free lessons. Designed for use in classroom too, Sparki is already being used in more than 1000 K-12 schools and in many top universities.
In this tutorial we will use one soil hygrometer module to measure soil moisture of a pot.
The module can give us a digital signal when the soil need watering and this output can be adjusted by the potentiometer. Or it can give us an analog signal of current soil moisture!
