Tips and Tricks
- Powering Arduino --- extensive article here
- Power Adapter: you can use cellphone chargers or computer chargers between 9V and 12V DC and rated for more than 250mA (2.1mm plug, center pin positive)
- Battery: battery pack with 2.1mm plug can be foun in the MICA store. You can use 9V battery to power arduino with 2.1mm plug or Vin pin
- Rechargeable Batteries: here or here
- Wiring and putting it together
- Arduino and Coding

Project 1 is due October 19th. See the details on this link here.
Next week, come up with a working prototype of your project. A working prototype does not have to look good. It's a mock up of your project in its simplest form so you can understand how it works. Don't be precious about this stage, pay attention to the limits and constraints you learn form your prototypes.
The first prototype can be a small scale version of your project. If your project has 10 switches, make it work with 2 or 3 switches first.
