NEW PRODUCT – Make: More Electronics by Charles Platt
NEW PRODUCT – Make: More Electronics by Charles Platt. If you loved Make:Electronics then you’ll really love the sequel, Make: More Electronics. Make More electronics is another book from Charles Platt full of more ways to learn about electronics in fun, hands-on ways. It’s a great next step after the original Make:Electronics and expands on many of the things you’ve already learned or mastered from the first book.
Immediately, Make:More Electronics picks up where Make: Electronics left off. Through the collection of experiments and projects, you’ll explore key components and principals of electronics in hands-on ways. The book will walk you through, step-by-step, as you learn how to build projects and while also learning about the theories and topics surrounding those projects.
Topics include audio amplification, randomicity, and positive and negative feedback. And you’ll work with components like comparators, light sensors, higher-level logic chips, multiplexers, shift registers, encoders, decoders, and magnetic sensors.
It’s the perfect next step for the electronics enthusiast who’s intimidated by highly technical manuals and websites!

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.
