Arduino Projects for Beginners
If you’re after Arduino projects for beginners, then you have found the right place.
All the projects are pretty basic and help introduce you to the basics of the Arduino as well as making some pretty cool stuff along the way. While these projects are basic you will find that some of the projects are incredibly useful for real world applications.

In this Arduino LCD tutorial, I will take you through the steps to connecting a simple 16x2 LCD up to the Arduino. There is a ton that you’re able to do with an LCD (liquid crystal display) so it’s a good little device to learn how to connect and communicate with. You...read more
In this tutorial I will be looking at how to setup the Arduino DS18b20 temperature sensor and anything else you need to know about it. This project is pretty cool if you want to setup a data logger or just something to monitor the temperatures of a certain room. You...read more
In this Arduino light sensor tutorial I will go through the basics of setting up a photoresistor so you’re able to easily detect changes in light. This little device can be extremely handy in a lot of projects where measuring the amount of light is important. This...read more
The Arduino battery tester is a pretty cool nifty tool that you can use to check how charged a battery is. This is perfect for anyone who wants to know roughly how long a battery has left before it runs out of charge. This is a pretty barebones beginner Arduino...read more
In this tutorial we will be building a simple Arduino motion sensor that makes use of a PIR sensor to be able to detect motion. This simple circuit can be extended to do some pretty cool stuff for example activate lights, a speaker and much more. In this particular...read more
In this tutorial we’re going to make our very own Arduino dice circuit. This is a simple project and is great for introducing yourself to more of the basics of the Arduino. Much like the Arduino traffic lights project this project uses a variety of LEDS and resistors...read more
In this tutorial we will take a look at building an Arduino traffic light circuit. This will involve using a little a bit of code and a very simple circuit to put together. This is a great beginner project if you have only just bought your first Arduino or looking at...read more
If you’re new to the Arduino, then you will probably find yourself a little overwhelmed to what you can do and where to start. These beginner Arduino projects are a fantastic way to ease your way into learning more about how it works, programming code and much more.
It is pretty important that you have a lot of the basic electronic equipment that should have come with your Arduino. This includes things such as jumper wires, resistors, breadboards, LEDs and possible a few other parts. If not, you can find beginner kits pretty cheap around the web.
You will also need to make sure you have downloaded the Arduino software to your computer. It is available for all major operating systems including windows, Mac and Linux. You will need this for all sorts of projects not just Arduino projects for beginners.
If you’re new to programming and would love to learn more then what is included in the projects. You can find some pretty good information on the sketch (The Arduino programming language) here. This will take you through all the basics of variables, functions, comments and a lot of the inbuilt functions you can use.
We will be adding plenty more Arduino projects for beginners in the future so be sure to come check back later. Alternatively, you can follow us on all the major social networks.
