Networking with the B4
In this exciting project, we're connecting the B4 CPU to WiFi to remote program a B4. The project teaches students the foundations of web-based networking and involves WiFi, a simple web server, a web client and the interfacing between the various components and the B4.
In the end, students can upload a small program as a String to a Web Server, which interfaces with the B4 CPU that then runs the program.
Install the B4 Arduino Library and download the project code from: https://www.digital-technologies.institute/downloads
1x B4 Computer Processor Kit
1x Arduino Uno
1x Wifi Shield for Arduino Uno
4x Jumper wires (male-male)
Female header pins
Suitable for students in the years 7/8 and 9/10. A small amount of soldering is required.
