As part of the indoor suns material project i learnt how to put together a circuit using nano pixels which could then be plugged into an Arduino and be programmed. i used tools such as a wire cutters to skin the wires and the soldering iron to solder the wires to the lights. I also used heat shrink to prevent the wires from touching and shorting out.
From learning this i went onto making a more complex circuit to drive a motor/fan. Here are some photos of the end result:
Here is an image of the code that i wrote to programme the Arduino for the motor.
