CyberPi: Colour Mixer (Gr. 6-8)

Block-Based: Beginner


In this lesson, students will be introduced to variables to create a CyberPi Colour Mixer. This program will use the joystick and buttons to control the R, G, B colour values of all of the on-board LEDs. Then, students will use conditional statements to ensure that the R, G, B values do not go out-of-range.


  • Use a variable to store a value.
  • Change a variable based on user input.
  • Write a program in mBlock that executes a program if a condition is met.
