Maker and educator Janet Groenert wrote to us about the projects that youth program participants at the Science Museum of Minnesota have been creating with the Adafruit GEMMA!
Great news about the Arduino Gemma collaboration. We started using Gemma this summer in classes with 9-12 year olds for Design a Smart House and SmartHouse Boat and Glowing Mythical Creatures projects.
Kids program piezo buzzer, LED and photo cell to control them. We need a toy motor (elevators are popular) and are looking into two tutorials, one using the toy motor (yes) and stepper motor (sorta).
Featured Adafruit Product!
Adafruit GEMMA – Miniature wearable electronic platform: Love FLORA but want a bite-sized version? Look no further, GEMMA is a tiny wearable platform board with a lot of might in a 1″ diameter package. Powered by a Attiny85 and programmable with an Arduino IDE over USB, you’ll be able to realize any wearable project! We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don’t want to give up your Flora and you aren’t willing to take apart the project you worked so hard to design. It’s our lowest-cost sewable controller! (read more)
