Gizmo Garden – a great new STEM site! #makereducation
Check out the awesome new educational site GizmoGarden, via their post in the forums.
Creating crazy gizmos while learning practical skills and exploring potential careers – that’s the essence of Gizmo Garden. We provide hands-on engineering adventures, designed and taught by MIT-educated engineers, for youth in grades 6 through 9.
Gizmo Garden is presented by Skidompha Library in Damariscotta, Maine, recipient of the National Medal for Museum and Library Service in recognition of its innovative library programming.
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!
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.
