For years, PhysicsCentral has been engaging children (and children at heart) with our physics-based comic books.
Most recently, we’ve written and illustrated the Spectra series following the titular middle school superhero with all of the powers of a laser beam. Comics one through four can be read online for free, and the fifth book will be released in 2013.
Additionally, you can read our popular 2008 comic that pitted Thomas Edison versus the unsung hero of electricity and magnetism: Nikola Tesla. Just click on any of the comics below to read them online.
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.
