2014 Ole Miss Abstract II: Construction of a cosmic ray demonstration
We built an 8x8x8 LED cube powered by an arduino micro-controller. The cube was very challenging to build, soldering over 500 LEDs, and making repairs. The idea was to program cosmic ray or particle interaction type events for display purposes (maybe even muons stopping and decaying). The circuit board which attached to the arduino was equally challenging. It did not work for a week and then we debugs some circuit errors, mostly power connections. The cube finally worked as described. The challenge now is to learn to program the arduino.
