Are you afraid of the dark? Use an arduino board and a few components to build a light sensor that can illuminate your room. 
  • WHAT I NEED?

    1
    Accessories

    Micro USB cable

    2
    Software
    mBlock

    Mblock is a programming environment that uses blocks to create the code and is based on Scratch. This software makes Arduino programming and developing interactive apps something easy to do.

    3
    Materials

    Color LED

    Electric resistor

    Protoboard

    Jumper wires

    LDR
