OK my son just published a new episode of his show, about the TV B-Gone kit, and our class. There’s a lot of ADAFRUIT in there 🙂 Thank you!
TEACH the next generation of super-powered computer scientists, engineers, makers, artists! GOAL? Get them ready for tomorrow’s job market, if they choose to use these superpowers, or simply… make them realize how SMART they are; that computers and technology are NOT just about consuming, but also creating; that all the things they use and see all around them, were created by people, no smarter than themselves.

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.
