This year’s eggs were designed using Nodebox and Inkscape.
Charlie worked mostly in Nodebox. It’s patch-based programming was right at his level and copy, rotate and wiggle all got a lot of action.
Wyatt found inspiration in Minecraft and we worked together to write a letter writing script in Python to print out an wiki entry on egg. Then he created a vector version of the pixelated egg in Inkscape.
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.
