AdaFruit – Purveyors of fine geek supplies, AdaFruit are offering 10% off any kit on Ada Lovelace Day, if you use the code LADYADA. Our hope is that customers will use the 10% off as an incentive to pick up a kit for their daughter, wife, girlfriend, partner, friend, sister, aunt, mom, cousin (you get the point) or just someone out there who might be inspired to consider electronics, engineers, science and technology as possible careers or hobbies.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
