The best online resources for your back to school electronics projects #BackToSchool
There are lots of communities and resources out there for educators, hobbyists, makers, and students alike. Here are some of our favorite places to look for inspiration for new projects, learn about electronics, and more.
Arduino, a great beginners tool for learning about hardware, also offers some useful online resources for their users. Check out their learning system, forums, and blog for tons of ideas of what to do with your Arduino.
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.
