I’d like to thank you for taking the time out of your week to do the Ask an Engineer show. One of my favorite ways to learn is to listen to someone else talk about a subject that’s over my head, giving me impetus to think through what they’re saying and research the bits that I couldn’t figure out.
Just like The Screen Savers did when I first started learning about computers, Ask an Engineer is doing as I’m learning about electronics. Again, I appreciate all the time you put into the show, and I’ll always look forward to it on Saturday evenings – Everett.
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.
