At my school, I have the whole Thanksgiving week off so I decided to tinker with my Arduino Uno. The Arduino Uno is basically a tiny computer that you can code on your computer and invent new systems. The code is similar to C/C++. Created in Italy, it is similar to Raspberry Pi and MakeyMakey and many other interfaces
With the Arduino Uno, you can blink LEDs, create a zootrope and many other things that you can think on your own. The Arduino Uno starts with the basics of the Arduino, so it is a great kit to start with. Happy Thanksgiving!
