Getcha Red Hot Mouflons! I learned of Settlers of Catan relatively late in life; most of middle school was occupied by Axis and Allies (need replacement WWII tanks? get ’em here), but if I had it to do over again I’d have spent some time building roads and trading sheep for bricks. Catan’s got a huge following among the 3D printing community, so it’s no surprise that talented artists have produced some really wonderful replacements for the card stock pieces.
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.
