We need the ability to control voltage in a circuit. That's the purpose of the potentiometer.



In order for computers to function, there has to be a method of communication between the user and the machine. The commands of analogRead and Serial.begin opens that line of communication.




Adjusting the voltage output between 0 and 5 volts using an Arduino


Congratulations! You have mastered the basic skills of electronic design and Arduino coding. Now its time to move to the advanced stages of implementing Arduino into more complex projects. We'll start with "strings" and inviting a third party to use the Arduino. The third-party may not understand coding or Arduinos therefore, it's our responsibility to create a user-friendly environment.



Designing and coding a Binary Counter with an Arduino



How to build a dimmable LED. You will read values from a potentiometer, and then based on what values you read, you will set the brightness of the LED.



For Loops, which will allow you to control the conditions of the Loop. This is a very powerful programming technique, and it will allow you to take your projects to more advanced levels.



Allow you the opportunity to code your programs to branch into different directions depending on values that you are reading from sensors.

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform or board and software used to program that is designed to make electronics more accessible to everyone




In order to design and analyze a circuit, we need a working understanding of Ohm’s Law.


The analogWrite command only approximates analog voltages and does not produce an actual analog signal. It works by quickly turning the voltage to the pin on and off or pulse width modulation.



You'll need to be able to prompt a third party user for input and then input that information into the Arduino for an action.



While loops give us increased flexibility in our coding. For loops are based on counters, while loops are set on parameters.

Arduino refers to an open-source electronics platform or board and the software used to program it. Arduino is designed to make electronics more accessible to artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.


Capacitors are an important part of electronic components. Capacitors store charge like a battery and discharge rapidly.



Binary code represents a universal language because it is only one code for the entire planet to use and computers understand. Zero and One

Composites can be found just about everywhere: in airplanes and sports cars, golf clubs, and guitars, boats and baseball bats, bathtubs and circuit boards, and even bridges. Composites make bicycles and skis lighter, kayaks and canoes stronger, houses warmer, and helmets tougher.
Drafting is a highly refined form of drawing used to communicate ideas to engineers, architects, and craftspeople. In earning this badge, Scouts learn the importance of accuracy and simplicity in developing a drawing that shows precise details in a simple format.
A semiconductor device with three connections, capable of amplification and switching that changed the world forever.



Electronics is the science that controls the behavior of electrons so that some type of useful function is performed. Today, electronics is a fast-changing and exciting field.


Learning how to solder with proper soldering techniques is a fundamental skill every maker will need to master.
