I just wanted to say thanks to Adafruit, the community and surrounding Arduino enthusiasts for a really fun learning experience over the last few days. I have been working on modding the Flora Brakelight backpack concept for the past couple of days. This is my first real experience with Arduino at all. The Adafruit tutorials and documentation have been invaluable.
I am looking forward to getting some of my students involved with Arduino soon.
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.
