An Introduction to Sensors from PyroEDU #makereducation
Thanks to Christopher for writing in about PyroEDU’s new online course, An Introduction to Sensors, which is available here!
PyroEDU is excited to release our sixth online course, An Introduction To
Sensors, where we cover interfacing an Arduino Nano to a range of sensors
from motion detectors to temperature sensors. This is the final course in
our Introductory Series and we thought your readers would be interested in
one or multiple of our courses. Linked below is a press kit containing
information about PyroEDU, as well as a few photos and animations of what we
offer. Our courses are completely free to anyone with an Internet connection
and we want to share our knowledge with a broader audience. Please feel free
to use any of the information from the press kit to share details about our
efforts and please do not hesitate to contact us directly using the provided
contact information if you have additional questions or comments.
Each Tuesday is EducationTuesday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts about educators and all things STEM. Adafruit supports our educators and loves to spread the good word about educational STEM innovations!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
