Lauren Ipsum: Computer Science for Kids.

Lauren Ipsum is a children’s story about computer science. In 20 chapters and ~35K words, she encounters dozens of ideas from timing attacks to algorithm design, the subtle power of names, and how to get a fair flip out of even the most unfair coin.

The book is mostly written, and Ytaelena is working on the illustrations and layout. We’ve been working on this project over nights & weekends for about a year and a half. In return for a signed pre-sale copy of the book, your pledges will go towards translating the book into Spanish, Portuguese, and other languages.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
