mBlock and multiple LED’s

Next in this mBlock exploration for my class iBook is looking at how we can use multiple LED’s to create light patterns. Students will: solder LED’s to a common ground wire and an individual pin wire create blocks that turns the lights on and off in a sequence use variables and if statements to lessen the number of […]
