Enjoy The Warmer Weather Safely With A Sunscreen Reminder Hat #AdafruitWeekendProject

Get help rememebering to reapply with this Sunscreen Reminder Hat tutorial using FLORA.

Help remember to reapply your sunblock by building a reminder right into your hat! This sewable circuit uses a FLORA sewable microcontroller and its compatible UV index sensor to sense the sun and play a tune on a piezo buzzer when its time to refresh your SPF.

This is a good beginner project because it doesn’t have very many parts and requires no soldering. For this project you will need:
• a hat on which to build your circuit
• FLORA main board (The UV sensor does not work with Gemma or Trinket, so a Flora is required!)
• FLORA UV index sensor
• piezo buzzer
• 500mAh lipoly battery
• 2-ply conductive thread
• sewing needle and plain thread
• scissors
• pliers
• clear nail polish

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.
