On Sunday March 3rd, the littleBits team will be giving an electronics prototyping class at The Harlem School of the Arts as part of the AIGA Inspire/Make Free Teen Workshops. Students will use littleBits to design generative art machines, inspired by artwork they see during a tour of the MET museum. Creative possibilities are endless as students design drawing machines that can respond to light and sound or spin to create unique designs. Check back soon to see what we create.
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.
