Your sea turtle is ready to be outfitted with electronics! We will add the following:
- Battery pack
- CRICKIT microcontroller
Add the battery
Use screws provided to attach battery pack.
Mark the position of the two center holes with a pen.
Use screwdriver to poke holes in the cardboard. Don't widen the holes too much, the screw threads will grip the cardboard and pull themselves through.
Tighten the battery pack into place.
Mark the position of the motors with a pen or pencil.
Use double-sided foam tape to stick motors to underside of turtle.
Press hard to ensure strong bond.
Use twist-ties to hold CRICKIT on turtle's back.
Mark the position of two CRICKIT mounting holes.
Poke these holes all the way through the cardboard.
Thread your ties through these holes, tightening them to hold CRICKIT in place on your turtle's back.
Plug the ends of your motor cables into the terminal blocks on the "Motor" section of CRICKIT.
Tighten these connections down with a screwdriver.
