Bring your Arduino+Electronics Kits to class - We are meeting in Room 2250 from now on

Here is the info for the arduino starter kit that will be using in class starting week 6 (in two weeks)

You need to order this asap as they keep getting backordered every few days (this is because they just introduced a new chip)

Ideally you want to have this in your hands by Feb 10th

also you need to get the arduino into book by week 6:

Banzi, Massimo, “Getting Started With Arduino”, Orielly Press, 2008 (ISBN 10: 0-596-15551-4 | ISBN 13: 9780596155513)
(available in print version online, or as a FREE pdf through the UCLA Orielly Safari books account)

If you already own an arduino you will need these following extra elements (we will help organize an “unofficial” trip to all electronics to get stuff):

1. a breadboard
2. a perforated circuit board
3. 9v power for your arduino
4. at least 2 LEDs
5. at least 2 buttons
6. Two potentiometers
7. a photo resistor
8. a usb cable for your arduino
9. a 9v battery holder
10 a 2.1mm plug
