Breadboard Layout

Connect your parts to your breadboard as shown below. 

Steps

  1. Connect the longer leg of the LED to Pin 13 on the Metro. The shorter lead should be connected with a resistor to the ground terminal. 
  2. The Metro is capable of supplying 5V to your breadboard. Use a red wire to connect the 5V Pin on the Metro to the left power rail of the breadboard. Connect the GND Pin of the Metro to the rightmost part of the power rail. 
  3. Connect one leg of the 560 Ohm resistor to the shorter leg of the resistor. The other leg of this resistor is connected to the rail with the black wire (this will be your ground rail).
  4. Your completed circuit should be identical to the layout above. Make sure to verify all connections before moving on. 

Breadboard Layout Sheet 

Each circuit comes with a printable layout sheet to place on the mini-breadboard. You can hold them down with headers (or tape) like this:
