“E for Electronics” coloring book (review from 9 year old)…
Todd writes –
My 9yr old son, is having fun coloring in your new “E is for Electronics” book today. It is so GREAT what you all do at Adafruit for all skill levels in electronics but especially beginners. Now with this coloring book it helps engage children of all ages. Thanks SO MUCH!
Alex says, “I like the coloring book and it was fun to color and learn about batteries and breadboards.” Alex would be very exited to see his work on Adafruit. He really liked the description for ground in a circuit being like measuring how tall you are from your feet on the ground to the top of your head. That really made it easy for Alex to understand the term “ground” in electronics.
I included the ground page if you want to post it too. He sure is having fun with this coloring book. Thanks for making this book!
Ladyada’s “E is for Electronics” is a coloring book adventure with electronic components and their inventors.
Makers of all ages can learn, color, and share common parts and historical figures throughout history. Explore the world of electronics with Ladyada as your guide!
Here’s an excerpt:
“A diode lets electrons flow in only one direction. It works like a switch: when current is flowing one way, the switch is on, but when current tries to flow the other way, the switch turns off. Sir John Ambrose Fleming is best known for inventing the diode, originally called the kenotron.”
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
