Systems consist of sub-systems that relate to each other by inputs and outputs.

Task Description
A grab bag of exercises that should extend what you can do with Arduino, motors and sensors. Work in your current teams - but you must delegate tasks to individuals based on need, aptitude and interest. Synthesize what you do individually and show us something as a team by the end of class.

Build a circuit that will protect your Arduino when using an inductive load.
Drive a stepper motor with an Adafruit Industries Motor Shield.
Experiment with various types of sensors.
Put it all together and present what you have done to the group (10 minutes per team).
