Watch the video and follow the steps to build the space station.
When you are (almost) finished you will see that the brain is hanging outside the station. That's not random.
This way you can easily add the programmable chip!

Building a space station
Scroll down for the steps
The aliens are impressed by your rescue efforts! They are testing a new space station and hopefully you will make one on Earth to see how it survives in your atmosphere.
Please note! For this creation you need (almost) all of the parts that are in the full kit sit down. You can also expand your starter kit so you have as much stuff as a full kit.
BYOR space station components (Electronics)
The space station contains a lot of parts! Here is the complete list.
The stepper motor (2x)
The LED (2x)
The distance sensor
The light sensor
The servo motor
The sound sensor
So there are a lot of parts that need to be built in. If you think: that will not fit in the Easyboard, then you are right, we use splitter cables for this.
The splitter cable turns one connection into two connections. So at one side you still need two signal cables to connect components.
Try the splitter cable, connect 2 output parts (green) to the splitter outputs (use two normal signal cables for this). And then connect the splitter input, to the green side on the Easyboard. Connect an inputpart (blue) opposite to this one to the Easyboard and power the Easyboard with the powerbnk. Give the blue input-part a signal. Do both green parts light up?
Try it with two components that consume little power, for example two LEDs. With two stepper motors it doesn't always work.
With every electrical device that is designed, a flowchart is drawn. This schematic shows how the electronics should work. Fortunately, the electronics of BYOR are very easy to use and the wiring diagram below will do for now. Follow the lines and see how everything will be connected.
For the branches of the lines you use the splitter cables.
Construction of the space station
Use the blueprint the aliens sent with the BYOR-electronics to make a space station. If you don't have the blueprint you can order it here.
This is how you use the blueprint
As with the other blueprints, stick the blueprint on cardboard and then cut along the dotted lines.
Sometimes it is more convenient to first cut the shapes out of the paper, then stick them on cardboard and then cut out the shape in the cardboard again.
Fold lines and the location of split pins are also indicated. The space station requires some tricks which are only used in
To build the communication dish, you need the blueprint and the BYOR parts in addition to the blueprint:
-A pair of scissors
-A prick (or a prick pin)
