The Arduino Inventor's Guide


Learn Electronics by Making 10 Awesome Projects

Get started with Arduino by building 10 projects that will teach you how to build, code and invent using a handful of electronics parts. The book starts off with the basics of how a circuit works, reading wiring schematics and using solderless breadboards, then moves into creating projects that move, buzz and interact with the world through motors, sensors and more. With each project, you'll learn coding skills that enable you to tell the project what to do such as store temperature readings, start a timer, make decisions using loops and more. Projects include:

  • A miniature traffic light
  • A fast-paced button-smashing game to test your reflexes
  • A temperature-sensing mini greenhouse with an automated fan and vent
  • A light-sensitive, color-changing night-light
  • and more...
