Foldable bedroom made by students could help with disaster relief
Check out this awesome project from Valley Christian Junior High students! Featured on Make.
As part of Shruthik Musukula’s class at Valley Christian Junior High, he and his classmates built this foldable room for disaster preparedness. It can act like a bedroom, complete with fold-up desk and fold-down bed, and packs small for easy shipping. The key is in the hinges and triangular pieces, which allow it to collapse in on itself, like an origami fortune teller.
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.
