Hello!

Ever wanted to make your own LED circuit using an Arduino and a Breadboard?

Well today’s your lucky day!

Task 1: Aquiring Materials

For this fun and simple project you only need a few things

  • An arduino
  • A breadboard
  • At least 2 wires
  • As many LED lights as you want
  • One resistor for each light
  • A USB wire
  • A device with a USB port

Task 2: Plugging in the Wires

Now for the assembly, the first part of which is to plug in our wires!

  • Peel 2 wires off of the clump with metal on the end
  • Plug them into the 5V and GND slots
  • The wire in the GND slot then goes into the negative side of the breadboard
  • The wire in the 5V slot goes into the positive side
  • The wires should be right beside each other

Task 3: Resistor and LED Light

Now we need to put the LED wires and the resistors in

  • Remove a 220 resistor from the pack
  • Plug one end into the negative side of the breadboard, and the other any place on the numbers side
  • Remove any color of LED light from the pack
  • Plug one end into the positive side of the breadboard, and the other anywhere IN LINE with the resistor

Task 4: Final Product

We’ve got everything put together! Now we only have a few more steps!

  • Plug the USB cord into the back of your Arduino
  • Plug the other end into a USB port on your computer
  • Watch as your light comes on!

Task 5: Extra Add-Ons

Congratulations, well done! For something even cooler, you can ass a second, or even a third LED light.

  • Assemble the Resistors and LEDs in the same way as the first
  • Leave some space between for organization
  • Make sure you plug the wires into the right ports!
  • You don’t need anymore connections to your Arduino with wires gadgets – LED Arduino Circuit, in category: technology
