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.

  1. How much tinkering would be needed to get the UV sensor hat to include a Neopixel to display the UV index as a appropriate colour blink in appropriate amount of repetitions? (ie. UV index 8, Neopixel would blink in red 8 times) Could a soft button (such as a Lilypad button, or anything alike) be used to make sure that the battery isn’t drawn empty and to give the information on request? Or is it a fool’s folly?

  2. I’ve never programmed before but I’m making a project with the GEMMA. Where do you suggest I start with learning how to program? Arduino tutorials? Just messing around with others’ code?

  3. Barbara, try to get the neopixel sample code up and running using the Introducing GEMMA guide. You may want to read through our Arduino lessons to get a better understanding of how everything works. Arduino.cc is also a great resource!
