My friend Aaron Juarros & I decided to cast an old fried Arduino in bronze to serve as a trophy to DIY types. The source Arduino led a good life as an educator (it was fried by students at New Mexico Highlands University).
Our first run of ten is bound for the 2012 MCN Conference in Seattle. We will be donating one to the MCN Silent Auction (proceeds benefit MCN Scholarships).
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.
