To assemble the inclinometer, channel your inner MacGyver, and follow the steps below.

Draw a reference line 3/4" below the top of the battery pack. This will be used to help align the Circuit Playground when we mount it.

Cut off a piece of double backed tape. About 1" x 1" is good.

Apply the double backed tape to the battery pack.

When placing the Circuit Playground on the tape, try to keep the line centered in the 3.3V hole on the left and the GND hole on the right.

Apply the Circuit Playground to the double backed tape and press down firmly.

Attach the plastic straw to the top of the battery case using the rubber bands.

And here's the fully assembled inclinometer. Didn't use a paper clip, but still pretty MacGyvery.

Now let's load the inclinometer software.
