It is never too early to start them off working with electronics projects! My 8yr old son, Alex, practices his spelling words in Morse code every night. He gets 50 homework points for coding his spelling words so why not learn Morse code?
Until now he has been using my Fluke 87v multi meter as the buzzer. I really wanted my Fluke back so we found a circuit he could build himself to use as the buzzer.
Alex is the host for this video and he seemed to have a lot of fun making the circuit and the video.
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.
