Press that button

In Computing today we had to use our electronics knowledge to create a circuit that contained a button, a LED and two resistors. This is the first time we used breadboards in compuing and it took a while to get all things set up. Eventually we were able to write some Scratch code so that when the button was pressed the LED came on. This extended our use of GPIO pins to include the button as an input. Next week we will create a reaction game based on this set-up.
