1.0 - Introducing Arduino UNO
Meet your microcontroller!
“Arduino was born at the Ivrea Interaction Design Institute as an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. “ – Learn more from the Arduino Guide

1.1 - Breadboard
That white thing attached to your UNO? Its a solderless breadboard!
Breadboard make it easy to create circuits without soldering any wires together. The connection is made by inserting wire into the tiny holes:
- Each pin hole on a
Railis connected vertically.
- Each pin hole in a
Rowis connected horizontally.
Splitruns down the middle dividing the board in two.
