First time? Follow the instructions below to get started on your coding adventure!

If you'd prefer to watch a video to help you get started, head on over to You Tube.

Step 1

Charge your Jewelbot!

Step 2

To begin coding your Jewelbot, you will need to download the Arduino IDE.

Step 3

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 4

Once you have Arduino downloaded & the boards installed, you can begin by creating & uploading a new sketch.

Step 5

Upload a sample sketch to make sure everything is working correctly!

Step 6

Code away! If you have a friend with a Jewelbot head over to friendship coding. If not, head over to solo coding for instructions.

Step 7

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