Get started with your Code Rocket
1) Unbox and Plug in your Board
Your Code Rocket comes with a retractable USB cable. Extend the cable by pulling from both ends at the same time. The striped sticker on the cable should align with the USB stripes on the Code Rocket. When your Code Rocket is plugged in and powered on, it will have a solid green light on. Watch this video for more help.
2) Upload a test Program to your Code Rocket
If you’re on Windows or Mac, you should be uploading the test program from the Let’s Start Coding app that you downloaded. If you’re on Chromebook, you should be uploading the test program from a Google Chrome web browser.
Hit the ‘Upload Your Code’ button in the green bar below to upload.
When the code has uploaded successfully, you’ll hear a rising tone on your Code Rocket and all of the lights will come on. Don’t worry about understanding the code right now, that’s what the projects are for. Once you see a big ‘Success!’ message and hear the tone, click ‘Start the Projects’ to start coding.
