Mickey Mouse is getting in on the solar boom. In the past year a new solar farm has sprung up right outside the gates of Disney World and Epcot Center. Duke Energy DUK -0.03% built the 20-acre installation which features 48,000 photovoltaic panels arranged to look like the head of that iconic mouse. Equivalent in size to about 1,000 residential solar systems, the panels will generate peak output of about 5 megawatts.
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.
