How To Make It


Build a 3-level base made out of Popsicle sticks (4 sticks per level)


Build your circuit: Power + Dimmer + Pulse + Wire+ LED + RGB LED + Bright LED + Bargraph


Take two plastic cups and decorate them with markers or paper to make the spaceship. Cut a hole in the bottom cup to thread the wire through and connect it to LED + RGB LED + bright LED + bargraph so that all of the green Bits are in the cup


Tape a cup to the top of the bottom cup. Your rocket ship is made!


Connect the rocket ship to the base via wire Bit and prepare for takeoff.
