Introduction of the Project

Are you tired of getting lost in your studies and forgetting to take a break? Or perhaps you’re looking for a fun and easy way to stay on track with your productivity goals? Look no further than an Arduino study breaks reminder! By following a few simple steps and using an Arduino board and a few other components, you can create a handy tool that will help you stay focused, take regular study breaks, and increase your overall productivity.

We’ll walk you through the process of building your very own study breaks reminder using Arduino, so you can work smarter, not harder. To build this Arduino project, we will use a buzzer, which will help us in taking breaks after a particular time period of starting studies. These breaks will help to refresh our minds for long-lasting memory power. Just before starting your studies, all you need to do is, press a button! And the buzzer will buzz after a time period decided by you.



To make a Study breaks reminder using Arduino, we will require the following components.


Note: To build physical projects, the components can be purchased online or from any electronics center. We have used the TinkerCad website to simulate this project.

Steps To Build An Arduino Study Breaks Reminder With A Buzzer

Step 1: Assembling all the required components on the Digital Board of TinkerCad.

Piezo (Buzzer):

Step 2: Connect the Positive terminal of the Piezo buzzer to the GND pin of the Arduino.

Step 3: Connect the Negative terminal of the Piezo buzzer to the 8-number pin of the Arduino.

Push Button:

Step 4: Connect the 1st terminal of the Push Button to the GND pin of the Arduino through a resistor.

Step 5: Connect the 2nd terminal of the Push Button to the A2 pin of the Arduino.

Step 6: Connect the 3rd terminal of the Push Button to the 5V pin of the Arduino.

Source Code

void setup()
pinMode(8, OUTPUT);
pinMode(A2, INPUT);
void loop()
int state = analogRead(A2);

if(state == 1023)
digitalWrite(8, HIGH);
digitalWrite(8, LOW);
state = LOW;

Explanation of the Code

1. In the setup function, we have configured the pins “A2” and “8” of the Arduino for input and output purposes.

2. In the loop function, we are reading the input from the A2 pin of the Arduino and storing its value in one integer variable named “state”.

3. After this, we use an if statement, which uses a delay function that takes time in milliseconds to predefine the time to produce sound using a buzzer after pressing the button.

4. In this way, we can fix the timing using the delay function.

On starting the simulation, when we press the push button, after some fixed time, the buzzer will produce a sound for two seconds, which will help us to remember to take a break.
