  • Next click the orange "control" block group section and drag in a "forever" loop.
  • Also from the "control" section, drag in two wait 1 seconds blocks.
  • Then click on the "Raspberry Pi GPIO" block section and drag in two set gpio to output blocks. Set one block to set gpio to output high. Set the other to set gpio to output low
