A project that promotes physical computing shows that there is more to CS than just programming. The final project was a phone case of the letters GWC, composed of LED lights connected with photoresistors. Each resistor was programmed to light the LED lights according to the amount of light it receives. When all three photoresistors were covered, the lights blinked in a pattern.
"The best part of the project was struggling because we all struggled together, because it was the kick-start to our adventure and our success in the end. "
