I have my Feather HUZZAH talking to the Internet, and received the first email message... I just have to say this is *insanely* cool! Thank you, Becky! Now, to move on to the PIR test...

I think your diagram is incorrect. You specify a PN2222 transistor, which has a pinout of 1=Emitter, 2=Base and 3=Collector. But you show the 5V connection through the diode to pin 1, while it should be connected to the Collector. Reversing the PN2222 works, or substituting a 2N2222 which has the opposite pinout. Here is my circuit with the PN2222 reversed, which makes the motor spin.

I love this idea! I don't have any of the tall headers handy, like the ones you show, but I came up with a variation. I do have a ton of those snap-apart headers you can buy really cheaply. So I pulled a pin and found it to be just a little over 1cm in length. So I tried bending a U-shape at one end, and it works pretty well. One advantage is that it only takes one hole on the breadboard, which can be a good thing. Here are a couple of images to show the idea.
Hi! I am very interested in this but I have no experience with surface mount technology. I have done a ton of PCB assembly with discrete components, and I have a pretty good small soldering iron. Will I be able to assemble this with my skills and existing equipment? Thanks! ~ Russ
You made a mistake in your first illustration. You have both the NPN and PNP labeled as BC807. The NPN should be a BC817 or similar.Itherwise, great series, Thanks for taking the time to document this so clearly.
