Step 1: Parts
-Arduino UNO, MEGA, or DUO
(Recommend MEGA) Link
-Radio Shack Sidekick Basic Kit Level one for Arduino
From it you will need:
-Breadboard (circuit board)
-ALL Long wires and some short wires
-20 2- leg LED lights
-Computer with Arduino Software and USB Cable
Step 2: Step 2: Insert LED on Outer Part
Before we advance, I want to inform you of the difference of the positive and negative on the LED. The longer of the two is positive.
Start by placing 5 LEDs of the same color on one of the ends of the board with the + and - signs on it. Be sure to remember to put the longer in the positive. Then take another color and place 5 the same way on the other side of the board. When you are done, it should look like the picture shown
Step 3: Step 3: Insert Middle LEDs
In the middle, Each numerical row is one circuit. Each LED will take up two numerical rows. It will be hard but look at the pictures for help with inserting them. Make sure to remember to face the positives in the same direction and label the pos and neg ends.
