A for Ampere – preview of the open source electronics coloring book, Ladyada’s E is for electronics! We’ll post more images and information soon, we’re exciting that this project is moving along again! We hope to have it out by the holidays.

Here’s the list of letters and words!

a – amperes
b – battery / breadboard
c – capacitor
d – diode
e – electronics
f – fpga/frequency/fet
g – ground
h – hertz
i – current/infrared/inductor
j – joule
k – kelvin
l – led
m – motor/microcontroller/multimeter/mos/mosfet the cat
n – noise/npn
o – ohm/oscilloscope/opamp
p – potentiometer/pcb
q – quartz / quantum field effect transistor
r – resistor/relay
s – switch/silcon/soldering iron
t – transistor
u – ultraviolet/usb/uart
v – voltage
w – wire/watt
x – xtal
y – yagi antenna
z – zener


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.

  1. OMG! This is perfect for my kids! THANK YOU LADYADA AND TRAVIS!!!!!!

  2. This will be great for so many of our Make:KC activities. Looking forward to getting some copies. When will they be available?

  3. @vince “We hope to have it out by the holidays.”

  4. Heh, I remember learning that Ampere was a person from the Radio Shack 70’s era comic books ("history of electronics" maybe?)

  5. Next time I solder up a board, that’s what I’m going to wear.

  6. Interesting! This list makes me remind the ICAO alphabet for Morse Code:

    A – Alpha
    B – Bravo
    C – Charlie
    D – Delta
    E – Echo
    F – Foxtrot
    G – Golf
    H – Hotel
    I – India
    J – Juliet
    K – Kilo
    L – Lima
    M – Mike
    N – November
    O – Oscar
    P – Papa
    Q – Quebec
    R – Romeo
    T – Tango
    U – Uniform
    V – Victor
    W – Whiskey
    X – X-ray
    Y – Yankee
    Z – Zulu

  7. So, for M the poor guy’s gotta draw Mosfet the Cat using a multimeter on a MOSFET connected to a microcontroller that’s controlling a motor. Sheesh, have a heart!

  8. T definitively need a drawing of the genius Tesla.

  9. I is for current, but I’ve never been able to figure out why. E is for Voltage, of course (Electromotive force).

    And another vote for Tesla. Brilliant *and* crazy! Anyone who builds towers to generate lightning is my kind of guy.

  10. Is there a way to get a notification when these are out? I so want to give it to my kids for the holidays.

  11. I love it, love it! Want to use it as part of my curriculum please email/notify me when its done!

  12. Let me know when this coloring book is available. It will be perfect for my library!
