August is Back to School month at Adafruit #backtoschool
As we kick off August here at Adafruit, each day we’ll be bringing you a post for educators on the Adafruit blog. Check back for guides to workshop-friendly products, special back to school roundups and inspiration to earn or bestow skill badges from the Adafruit Academy, as well as new “Ask an Educator” columns. We’ll also highlight new features of the Adafruit Learning System that are especially helpful to educators. We always have discounts for educators and hackerspaces!
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.

I’m using Adafruit tools, kits, and components in the Masters in Technical Entrepreneurship program at Lehigh. The students love ’em! We’re currently working on a large Game of Life panel for our classroom and programming the Arduino. Thanks Adafruit!
