What is a Breadboard?

A breadboard is a plastic piece with conductive channels. It's a solder-less way to connect wires, sensors, and devices to these ports to create prototypes, devices, and electronic circuits. In this tutorial, we'll show you how easy it is to get started with breadboarding!

Parts of a Breadboard

Breadboards are composed of three (3) parts:

  1. Horizontal Rows (yellow and green lines)
  2. Vertical Columns
  3. Power (red) /Ground (blue) Rails

The middle divider separates both sides. So if you power/ground one side of the breadboard, you will also need to power/ground the other side.

When wiring a breadboard, be sure that the wires lay flat and are attached neatly to the board. It is good practice to label wires that are attached to important sensors or actuators, as well

Step 1 - Configure Your Power Source

Next, let's configure the power source. There are two sets of power rails that run along the edges of the breadboard. Rails are marked black/blue for ground (-) and red for power (+). Each rail is independent of another, so you will have to connect the left positive rail to the right positive rail and the lef…
