Made for ART3681C - Interactive Electronic Art

Needed Supplies:

Most of the supplies I used were in this ELEGOO Arduino starter kit

1 - ELEGOO Arduino UNO R3 (included in kit)
1 - DHT11 Temperature and Humidity Sensor (included in kit)
6 - Male-to-Male Jumper Wires (included in kit)
1 - 9V Battery with Battery Clip (included in kit) or 1 - 5V Power Adapter (not included)
1 - 8 x 8 WS2812B LED Matrix
Thin Heat Shrink Tubing or Electrical Tape
Arduino IDE (used to add code to the Arduino)
To add code to the Arduino, you’ll need a computer nearby, and the USB cable that came included with the kit.

Optional Supplies:

I had leftover chipboard, Bristol board, and tacky glue to make a screen for the LED Array, but it’s not necessary to complete the project. If you want to make the screen I made, you’ll need a 3.5” x 3.5” square of any kind of thicker-pressed paper(Bristol board or cardstock are some examples),a small amount of chipboard, and tacky glue to make a frame for the LED Matrix.”
