The FCC in USA is about to vote to get rid of the net neutrality, letting ISP's censor and throttle websites, and charge extra fees. This would allow ISP's to throttle this site, when they don't like the idea of every student learning about robotics, technologies and generally how to think.

The FCC will end net neutrality on Dec 14th if we don't convince Congress to stop them. Join the Protest and Contact Congress to save net neutrality.

If you are not from USA you should also be alarmed. Similar policies are already in the process of implementation in the other 59 countries in which is used. We should fight for our Internet freedom regardless of where we are from.

Arduino Basic Course. Unpacking the set. Names of the elements Pro Preview

For the current specific example we need two parts - the diode and the controller. In this episode we would show you which part is the controller, which are the jumpers and finally we would choose a diode.

You don't need to know every part now. We would get to most of them in the course and discuss them. For now lets just focus on the controller and on the diode.


Below this video you can find a list of all the materials that you'll need for the whole course. We've discussed this even in previous videos. But for this specific example for the blinking diode we need only two parts. The controller and the diode.

In the set we have the Arduino controller. In this box right here.

We have also a number of diodes with different color. They are in this bag. And we have a red diode, a green and a yellow one.

We don't need all the other elements. The prep boards, the motor and the other. So, I'll just remove them and the jumpers. And we need only one of the diodes. And for this video I choose the red one.

Find these two elements in your set and prepare them for the next video.
