Tested Tour Bus Diaries: BEST. DAY. EVER. (A.K.A. Space Camp)
We don’t know a single kid who wouldn’t want to go to space camp. Most of us here at Adafruit would probably jump at the chance to go even as adults! So if you’re like us and have always wondered what it would be like, make sure to check out this awesome post from Adam Savage over on Tested. Some of his photographs are incredible!
Man, it’s amazing to see real Apollo hardware up close. It’s all so… handmade. In the best way. It’s hard to convey, but the personal brilliance of the engineers and machinists and seamstresses that all contributed to the space program is on parade.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
