Let's get started
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Getting It All Ready
First things first, prepare a breadboard and a Ardunio Uno tm
Step 2: LEDs
Next go ahead and add two LEDs of your choice. In this example, I used red and blue.
Step 3: Buttons
Next go ahead and add two buttons directly below the LEDs.
Step 4: Power
Add 4 resistors corresponding next to each component.
Step 5: Grounded
Connect your ground column on the breadboard to the GRND port on your Ardunio Uno tm
Step 6: Setting Up the LEDs and Buttons
Next go ahead and connect a ground wire to each component. Start from the top LED and work down to the second button. Simply connect to the ground column on the breadboard.
Step 7: Connect Your Resistors
Next connect the resistors to the corresponding components hot lane on the breadboard.
Step 8: Power Up the LEDs
Connect the top LEDs resistors to the Ardunio Uno tm. Red goes to pin 7, Blue goes to pin 6.
Step 9: Power Up the Buttons
Just like last step, you'll connect the buttons this time. First button's resistor goes to pin 5, second button to pin 4.
Step 10: Complete!
Your project should be functioning now. Attached is test code to run the project and see if it works on your Arduino Uno tm
