STEP 3

Take two plastic cups and decorate them with markers or paper to make the spaceship. Cut a hole in the bottom cup to thread the wire through and connect it to LED + RGB LED + bright LED + bargraph so that all of the green Bits are in the cup

STEP 4

Tape a cup to the top of the bottom cup. Your rocket ship is made!
