Topics covered
What is Arduino?
Software setup (IDE, how to program it, the Serial monitor)
Reading schematics and Fritzing (wiring) diagrams
Basics of breadboarding
Blinking an LED
Reading sensor input (with a light sensor)
Controlling output (with a simple motor)
Combining input and output, making the motor move in response to light
