Project 24 – LCD Temperature Display

This project is a simple demonstration of using an LCD to present useful information to the user—in this case, the temperature from an analog temperature sensor. You will add a button to switch between displaying the in Celsius or Fahrenheit. Also, the maximum and minimum temperature will be displayed on the second row.

Parts Required

The parts required are the same as for Project 23, plus a button and an analogue temperature sensor. Make sure that the temperature sensor only outputs positive values.
