NeuroBytes are tabletop electronic neuron simulators designed to help students understand basic neuroscience concepts. The platform consists of modular elements that can be freely connected to form biologically representative networks, and has been built from the ground up to be accessible to young learners without sacrificing the depth and sophistication that make it a valuable tool for college-level audiences. NeuroBytes are entirely open-source, meaning both the hardware design and the firmware that controls their behavior is freely accessible to anyone.
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.
