Day 1 – Mini Golf Project


  1. reveal groups
  2. groups review packets
  3. questions and answers
  4. groups complete pages 2 and 3 and review work with Mr. Milstead and Mr. Varvil.
  5. CAD/CAM – into the lab with Mr. Milstead to complete necessary measurements and fill out measurement worksheet.
  6. Woodworkers – join Mr. Varvil in the shop to build the box for your golf hole.


goals: connect Arduino to stoplight wiring and write program that makes stoplight work in desired sequence (green, yellow, red) AND a WALK/DON’T WALK light that is solid and blinking at appropriate times.  After you have completed the above you will begin work on your plasma cut WALK/DON’T WALK enclosure.


Arduino inputs and outputs.

You have worked with LEDS involved using OUTPUTS.

Now we bring the switch into play as an INPUT.  Click here to see the variety of sensors that work as Arduino inputs.

It all starts with inputs and outputs.  Take a look at the sample code below:
