T3W9F: Building The RGB LED Controller Kit

Unfortunately this term the Friday class for the STEMapalooza elective missed a bunch of sessions, including last week for Field Day - I think there were four or five classes cancelled for one reason or another. So we only had two classes to do soldering instead of the five or six I had planned, and as a result we won't be able to do the LED clock project I did with the Tuesday class (which would take three classes to finish).

So I was scrambling at the last minute to find something that could be done in one class time that I could receive in less than a week - Amazon Prime to the rescue! There are a bunch of kits that blink LEDs (Christmas trees are very popular) but I wanted something a little more interactive and with fewer parts to solder. There weren't a lot of choices but I settled on a little circuit board that lets you adjust the color and brightness of an RGB LED.
