First time? Here's how you get started on your coding adventure!

Step One

Download the Arduino IDE, you can find those instructions here.

Step Two

The Arduino IDE is a programming environment that let's you code for lots of different things. You need to set it up to work with Jewelbots, so follow the steps to add the Jewelbots boards.

Step Three

Upload a sample sketch to make sure everything is working! You can find one here.

Step Four

Code away! If you have a friend with a Jewelbot head over to friendship coding. If you're alone, coding is still super fun! Just head over to the solo coding section for instructions.

Step Five

Share what you build! Head over to our community site to see what other people have made/show off your coding skills!
