Welcome to experiment 6 of the LilyPad Design Kit, where you’ll dive into the design and creation of a microcontroller circuit.

A microcontroller is a tiny computer that can be programmed to intake information and regulate power to your circuit, letting you control lights, sensors, sound, movement, and a number of other factors. Ultimately this will let you make projects that are unique, customized to your needs, and interactive! We won't be programming this controller, it comes pre-programmed, but you'll learn how to connect the parts. When you're ready to program your own circuit, it will go together the same way!
