As part of the Herbstuni, the pupils programmed a LED cube, which then lights up horizontally and vertically. It was possible to regulate the speed with the A button, and the B button to reset the program.


In this example, students programmed a 5x5x5 cubebit using makecode programming. The aim of the program was to light each level in a different color.


In the video, you can see an L3D cube, which was programmed by a employee of the faculty to show the different lighting possibilities of the cubes impressively.
