Programming LED circuit with Arduino IDE

In this lesson students will be using components of the LilyPad development kit to create a circuit of LED’s that are controlled using a basic Arduino program, written in the Arduino IDE. Starting with a simple sequence of turning a LED on and off, the students can be challenged to choose a piece of music with a steady beat and program the lights to turn on and off in time to the music. This lesson idea was created by Toni Falusi.
