PIPER MAKE EDUCATOR RESOURCES SERIES
WATCH THE INTRO VIDEO:
- Build a tactile button that completes a circuit when the button is pressed.
- Use variables and loops to create a program that records the amount of times your button is pushed.
- Integrate skills related to knowledge about variables, conditionals, and debugging in the same project.
You can share the mission directly to your Google Classroom after logging into your Google educator account in the top right corner of Piper Make.
Useful vocabulary terms to use in classroom: input, output, microcontroller, GPIO pins, circuit
Console numbers not changing when you click the button?
Ensure that your code includes the line to add one to the number you have in the console.
Ensure that you've plugged the wires into the right GPIO (take a look at the Digital View to see which pin you're affecting)
In this lesson, students will build this button circuit.
