Arduino Challenge #1: Blink an LED

What will I be making?

You will be using an Arduino microcontroller to make an LED (light-emitting diode) to blink on an off. It will look like this:

What skills will I be learning? Where can I find them in the video?

Okay, I think I’m done. What can I check to make sure?

  • Does your LED go on and off at a consistent rate?
  • Can you make it blink at a different speed than mine?
