The Outcome

The outcome of the project was positive. The LEDs accurately reflected the temperature reading of the TMP sensor. Unfortunately, the sensor was slightly unreliable, and seemed a bit inaccurate. It was improved by changing some of the code, but it remains less than stellar in terms of accuracy. The biggest challenge came when designing the "if" statement in my coding. I had to enter a boolean "&&" symbol in order to communicate to the Spark core that there was a temperature range, rather than use two inequality signs around one variable, which threw an error.

Next Steps

Moving forward, I would like to use a temperature sensor with more advanced accuracy. Additionally, I would like to learn how to write coding that would take samples of the light level throughout the day and populate a spreadsheet, so that I could have data that I could graph to view the curve of daily sunlight value.
