Raspberry Pi: Kids Build Cheap Computers. Ken writes –

When I was a kid, one of the best things to come in the mail was the newest HeathKit Catalog. In those days, kids and adults could build their own shortwave radios for almost nothing. I never had the “almost nothing” to spend, but remember spending hours reading, looking, and rereading that catalog—dreaming of the parts it would take to create my own shortwave radio set. I built hundreds in my mind. Between Heathkit electronics’ catalogs and ads that promised squirrel monkeys, alligators, baby chick hatching, and fishing, a poor kid could dream beyond the present. I know that I wasn’t the only one to escape that way—to draw, design, and imagine. While I’m a long way from there now,Raspberry Pi (FAQs) has rejuvenated that desire to dream and build in me—and I’m hoping it will do the samefor kids, their parents, and teachers. You can build a computer that works well for almost nothing—$25; you’ll just need to creatively design a case to contain it.

Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

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.
