I had such a great time teaching my first Processing workshop this past weekend. I had a wonderful group of ten students to spend the day with and get them started on their own creative coding adventures.
We set aside the last half hour of the class as “free time” for everyone to make something on their own. (An idea I borrowed from Seb’s CreativeJS training.) It was amazing to see what the class came up with even in such a short time. Most of them had never even opened Processing or done any kind of programming before. That made it even more impressive!
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.
