My students have begun working on their skill badge requirement sheets from the Adafruit Academy! Now that school is coming to a close, and we have fun things like “Senior Switch Day.” I gave my seniors the task of introducing the requirements sheets for the Multimeter, Laser Cutter, and 3D printer badges to my underclassmen. Here is just a snippet of the action around my Thing-O-Matic as they make a good ol’ Inception top.
If you or someone you know has used the requirements sheets to earn their own skill badges, please let us know in the comments below!
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.
