Hello, I'm a total beginner interested in learning how to use a Raspberry Pi Pico. I have a project in mind so I purchased the parts and am eager to get started. I purchased a already soldered Pico, LCD 20X4 i2C, Buzzer, (2) Grove - Micro Switch and a Grove Shield for Pi Pico v1.0 Oh forgot I have wires and breadboard....


My project is I need the LCD 20X4 i2C to say down when one Micro Switch is tripped and I need the LCD to say up when the Micro Switch is tripped. Now the buzzer needs to buzz lets say if I hit one Micro Switch and then I hit it again without hitting the second Micro Switch and vise versa.

Obviously this isn't all I need but if someone can get me started that would be awesome! Either info on what I'm wanting to do or some MicroPython example to get me started would be super.... I have successfully got the LCD running using test examples I found on the web but I'm kind of lost with the rest without guidance.

Thanks,
