ABOUT: We’ve got a whole spate of workshops up for the fall and early winter, plus plans for some mega-workshops after Christmas. (Don’t worry– we’ll have them up in time to give them as gifts!)
The workshops basically fall into a couple of “tracks”: A super comprehensive electronics track, which will actually take you from zero to making a custom robot in just a few months, a fabrics track that includes designing, repairing AND electrifying your clothes, a software track, and a couple of very exciting craft-oriented workshops.
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.
