DT Challenge - 7/8 Arduino - Sound

Let's make our own devices with the Arduino! We'll take a deep dive into building devices from the ground up, and you'll see how all pieces of technology are built! Learn how to create a temperature monitor, or a musical instrument, or make an automatic torch! Jump right in and let's make some noise!

To do the challenge offline use this guide to support students.
