For those of you who are new to the scene, I have been teaching high school courses in Energy Systems and Systems Engineering for the past 7 years and use a significant amount of today’s hackerspace technology in my curriculum. If you have any questions about utilizing things like laser engraver/cutters, 3D printers, Arduino, PICAXE, VEX, Vernier, etc. into your curriculum or just general use, I would love to share my opinion!
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.
