Drawdio build…

Hi, I’m a Mechanical Engineer who has discovered a real interest in electronics! Recently my main relay on my Civic died (cracks in the solder joints on the relays caused intermittent failures). I read about the problem on-line, whipped out my soldering iron and saved myself 50 bucks! I was grateful for a father who taught me just enough to make me dangerous with a soldering iron. It’s come in handy in my career even as a Mechanical guy (after all the solder failure was mechanical anyway!). Anyway it got me thinking it was time to start teaching my son these essential skills! Here is Brian soldering up his very own drawdio. He calls it his squeaky pencil. He is 7, and did all the soldering himself except the first component (when I taught him) and the speaker (we chose the advanced method), He loves it! Sometimes the making is more fun than the end product!

Thanks for the great products and the wonderful service.


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.
