  1. Fun project!

    We did something similar as a workshop for kids at the WebVisions Barcelona conference. Used the project to introduce electronics concepts and basic soldering skills. Once you’ve got it down, you can mix up LED colors and band colors to match your outfit or just your preferences. Good next steps skill builders include getting the LEDs to blink in sequence with another pot to control speed.
