Monochron Clock Kit – Sylvia’s Mini Maker Show!

By Super Awesome Sylvia and her dad, James

It’s time to make another kit from Adafruit, the alarmingly awesome Monochron clock kit. Lets go!

For this timely build, we’ll need:

  • Monochron kit from the Maker Shed
  • Soldering iron & solder
  • Wire snips
  • and optionally, our good friends the circuit board vice or helper hands. If you don’t have ‘em, pick ‘em up at the Maker Shed if you want to make all your projects easier to handle.

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. Mario on a clock? Now *that* is some creative making!!! Super cool vid.

  2. Awesome video!!! send that girl a check!

  3. And the Golden Soldering Iron for best training video goes to …

  4. Hmm… reminds me a little of when I was a kid.

    Except I wasn’t a girl. Or cute. Or had a Monochron. But, I did have a Science Fair 200-in-1 kit! (that counts, doesn’t it?) 🙂

    I *do* think this young lady will go far in life…
