Ultimate Kit Advanced Projects

Use a temperature sensor to blink out the current temperature with two LEDs. One LED blinks the 'tens place' and the other blinks the 'ones place'.

Brightness Wave

Use an array to change the brightness of the pixels on the LED strip in a wave formation.

Coin Toss

Use code to decide the outcome of a coin toss. Press the button and the lights will flicker as the 'coin' flips through the air.

Color Party

Use the random() function and the .setPixel method to have a party on the LED strip!

Color Scanning Bar

Sweep a 'bar' of lights across the LED Strip.

Combines an indicator light with a software timer and a light and speaker alarm and some math to ensure the timer is working in 10 second increments.


Use a button to count up to 70 on the LED strip using two colors of light- one for the ones place and the other for the tens place.

Dice Roll

"Roll" a digital dice using and LED light and some computer code! Learn about programming random decisions.

Drag Race Reaction Timer

To make a great reaction time game, create specific time windows where you’ll allow inputs to be read.


Using the random function in your code, let the code decide what color your RGB LED will show.

Jump Man Guided Build

Build your own video game on the Maker Screen. Start from a blank screen and work through 23 lessons to a fun old-school game!

Estimated time to complete:
20 Hours

Build a 3-LED clock that can keep time in the code and display it with a button press!

Light & Sound LED Strip Gauge

Using an LED strip, light sensor and sound sensor, create a double gauge that measures the sound from one end and the light from the other.

memory game

Test your memory against your own code! This program blinks out a pattern of lights, then you try to repeat it back. Each time you succeed, the pattern grows.

Morse Code Creator

Create messages in code that will blink on Maker Board's LED. Learn how to convert plain characters to ASCII code, then to Morse Code.


You’ll replace LED blinking lights with a speaker to make beeps instead of blinks in this Morse Code creator.


Combine the digitalWrite commands for the LED with the tone commands for the speaker in this Morse Code creator.

Multi-Color Glow Lamp

Fade and mix colors together in a repeating pattern to create a fun glow lamp for your computer.


Play a fun game of pong using lights and buttons. There's a lot of code here, but you can do it!

Sound Samples

Use loops, functions, and variables to create all kinds of cool sounds with just a speaker and a button. Then think up new ways to use code for all kinds of noises.

Sound Sensor LED Strip Gauge

Using an LED Strip and a sound sensor, create a sound gauge that lights up more pixels when it's loud and fewer pixels when it's quiet.

Temperature Sensor LED Strip Gauge

Using an LED Strip and a temperature sensor, create a temperature gauge that lights up more pixels when it's warm and fewer pixels when it's cool.

Timing Game

Try to hit the button just as the moving pixel passes the center pixel. Level up and increase your speed. How fast can you go?

Tune LED Colors with Button

Mix the colors of an RGB LED light together for hundreds of unique color combinations.
