August is Back to School Month at Adafruit #backtoschool
As we wrap up the last two weeks of August here at Adafruit, each day we’ll be bringing you a post for educators on the blog. Check back for guides to workshop-friendly products, special back to school roundups and inspiration to earn or bestow skill badges from the Adafruit Academy, as well as new “Ask an Educator” columns. We’ll also highlight guides on the Adafruit Learning System that are especially helpful to educators. We always have discounts for educators and hackerspaces!
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.
