Arduino (Building and code a 4 Byte Binary Counter)

This lesson is provided by Paul McWhorter of http://www.toptechboy.com/arduino/arduino-tutorial-6-build-an-led-binary-counter/ In this lesson we take you step by step through how to build and program your own Binary Counter. In lesson 5 we showed you how to count in Binary, and how Binary numbers work. In today’s lesson, we show you how to practically implement a binary counter using the Arduino and LED’s. We are using the Elegoo kit. 

Please gather the required components
