ASK AN ENGINEER, our weekly, live electronics show is 6 years old this week. Thank you everyone who has supported us for the last 6 years and here’s to many more. Special thanks to the Adafruit team, including George for helping out each week. As far as we know (and correct us if we’re wrong) – this is the longest running live electronics show in the world. We do not take sponsors, advertising, we do not have any loans of venture funding, we’re supported by our community and customers, thank you!
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.
