  1. Gather your components. You will need a micro:bit V2, a Bit Board,  some Crazy Circuits LEDs, and some 1/8" Maker Tape. You do need a V2 micro:bit as it has a built-in microphone. Previous versions will not work for this project. Once you have your components, assemble the parts onto a LEGO baseplate and use Maker Tape to connect the LEDs.
