Lighting an LED with a Button

Posted by Jason Robinson on

This tutorial is another is our Arduino basics that will get you comfortable with the idea of programming your Arduino, using a breadboard and arranging some simple components.  First things first, lets layout our breadboard with the following: 1.  Momentary Push Button2.  1- 330 Ohm Resistor3.  One LED4.  Three jumper wires (red, black and orange). Arrange the wires and components as seen on the breadboard.   In this case, red will be plugged into pin 13 of the Arduino and it will supply power to the button.  When you press the button is will then allow the power to go...
