Thanks! I just finished building 12 MiniPOV3 with a group of 7th and 8th grade students. They had a great time. They worked in teams of two (each team built two kits) with a “helper”. They had no previous electronics or soldering experience, and all of them succeeded in getting the MiniPOV3 working. It took about 1-1/2 hours all together. I’m planning a follow-up session to help them program custom messages into their MiniPOV. Thanks so much for great quality PCBs and fantastic documentation – Eric
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
