This is a project for Arduino to make a Thermometer with Digital Display, aimed at beginners.

Arduino measures the voltage on a TMP36 Temperature sensor, converts the Voltage to Degrees Celcius and Displays the value on an LOL shield display.

* Learn how to use the TMP36
* Learn how to perform numeric and string conversions in Arduino-C  (sketch)
* Learn how to display numbers on the LOL shield

Step 1: What you need

You will need:
* Arduino UNO
* LOL shield   (http://jimmieprodgers.com/kits/lolshield/)
* TMP36 Temperature Sensing IC
* Breadboard for wiring up e.g. (http://www.oomlout.co.uk/prototyping-bundle-for-arduino-ardp-p-186.html)
* Some Wires
<p>Nice project :)<br>Just curious, are there any resistors in the lol shield for LED-s?</p>
