MIT IAP, Session 2: Setting Up Sensors

Today’s session is mucho maker. We’ll do one more activity together; we’ll a photoresistor to our circuit. This will give you each enough basic skills to bust out independently. We’ll try this by each choosing a different sensor from the list below, and using online resources to connect that sensor to our circuit. We’ll prepare to “voltron” our sensors together in Session 3.
