Blink Code 

Testing your arduino connection

Before you start using your tiny new computer (aka Arduino) you are going to run a test. Using the blink code, you will be able to see a simple physical output where a built in LED blinks from the board.


Before you begin, you will need the Arduino Software downloaded. Refer to the link below this post for instructions.

Welcome to Arduino!

The first step in learning Arduino is to download the software.  This can be found at arduino.cc.  There are the step by step instructions in the images above.  

It is recommended to make sure that the install has worked by opening the arduino app on your computer.  In our next tutorial, we will go through how to use this interface and connect it to your physical Arduino device.

NOTE

If you have a chromebook, you will not be able to use this method and instead will need to create an account on Arduino Create to gain access to the web editor version.

The Physical Toolbox is a learning resource that is tactile, interactive, and collectable. Within the parameters of a 90mm x 52mm casing, a limitless world of methodology unfolds. The collection highlights various techniques and best practices in hand modeling, digital fabrication, mechanisms, and electronics- intended to serve as learning resources for makers of all age groups.
