In this course, we will explore adding features and functionality to our Arduino. We will expand upon the foundations taught in Foundations in Arduino Programming and show you how to make sounds, display information, and interface special addressable RGB LEDs.
After you've mastered the basics of input and output on the Arduino, the next step is learning how to get the Arduino to make sounds and play notes. We will then expand this project to show you how to play your favorite ringtones or small music files right on your Arduino! Finally, the course will conclude with an activity around interfacing and programming for a strip of WS2812 Addressable LEDs.
This course is offered in collaboration with SparkFun Electronics.
