In this lesson we will review the parts included in the kit and build the racing track.
The heart of our racing system is a small computer called Arduino, we will learn how it works.
We will dive into the exciting world of programming and install the software we will need during the workshop.
Our first programming task will be opening the gate once the race starts.
It's time to learn how to program LED lights in order to turn them on and off.
We will be adding some dramatic beeps and melodies during the start of the race.
In this lesson we will activate our LCD screen and display messages during the race.

We will use the 7-Segment displays in order to show who won the race.
We will add an option to start the race remotely by using a remote control.
We will learn about variables and use our new knowledge to display the round number on the screen.
We will improve the code so it will show the time it took the winner to complete the race.
We will load an upgraded code to arduino that will include some improvements and new game features.
In this lesson we will review the parts included in the upgrade kit and install them.
In this lesson we will learn how to work with our LED strip and light LEDs.
