The LCDS LED widget is an Arduino-powered LED display.  It was created by an LCDS parent to demonstrate to the LCDS 5th grade STEM class the process of creating a customizable product using several accessible processes that will be documented further on this site.  The goal was to have a fun, interesting and tangible product, to illustrate the process, and most of all to show that this is something that is feasible for anyone to accomplish.

Many pitfalls along the way stalled this project past when it was anticipated to be complete for the students to enjoy, but hopefully it will still be interesting and in their hands before the end of school for the summer.
