In the beginning of the session, students that took part in a previous module demonstrated their models that were created. It was cool to see how light could affect sound.
The first thing we did in the lab was to look at the Arduino board. Looking at the different part of the board and identifying specific parts of them making sure that we know where things would be placed.
We began coding using the software Arduino. the first task was to implement the coding that would cause the LED to flash. Making sure that each step was followed I was able to complete this and get the correct outcome.
The next task using Arduino was to experiment with the delay time of the LEDs changing them in the software just to see how a smaller delay time would affect and how a higher delay time would affect the rate at which the LED flashed.
Next we looked at using a function to loop 2 chosen letters for me which were L & H. when performed correctly using the correct format the end product would be automatic looping of L and H as such … LHLHLHLHLH etc. We did this by set up a function that would enable a loop when we were to go into the serial monitor. Making sure that all instructions and functions were written accurately and carefully spaced out, I was able to achieve the final goal.
The final task we did was to substitute our old functions for a new and simple one to get the same end goal of the blinking LED. This was done by first of all naming our function and then pasting it in place of the the long function that was used in the first task. This task was well performed as I had a good outcome with the blinking LED.
