Acrylic LED Art Project: Daily Log #1, Introduction

Today was the first day of our art project in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Project Lead the Way Digital Electronics Honors 573 (or DE for short) and it looks like it is going to be a fun 2 weeks. Basically, the goal of the project is to engrave and cut a clear piece of acrylic to show something in a wireframe style. However there will also be a black acrylic base, and inside will be an Arduino Nano as well as a bunch of RGB LED strips. My plan is to use a light sensor and dynamically change the colors based on light level (lower light level = warmer colors, while a higher light level = cool colors) however I’m still thinking about how I would go about coding that, and it might not be so easy.
