Adafruit Mailbag

From the mail bag!

Hi! I’m a high school science teacher from Mississauga, ON. I’ve been tinkering with Arduino for the last couple of years and I’m finally getting the hand of prototyping technology for the classroom.

My first project made use of your Data Logger Shield and Arduino Enclosure to dish out and log random consequences for arriving late to class. My students came up with all the consequences themselves and we programed the Arduino together. I put this project together to help keep track of attendance issues but it ended up changing the whole tone of my class. Students felt they had more of a say in how our class was set up and started coming up with great ideas about other pieces of tech for us to build.

Your tutorials are great! My background in is Vertebrate Paleontology so I had zero experience with electronics when I ordered my first Arduino. Now, I’ve made tonnes of projects for classes. Just wanted to say thanks for all your help!


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.

  1. Is there any way you could provide some details for your project? Fellow teacher here, just finished my first adafruit project and am intrigued by your data logger. Need a new project and this sounds perfect!
