From how their parents helped to what’s on their workbench right now, to kid-to-kid advice, 10 young makers tell their stories in ‘The Making of a Maker‘ at Parentage, a magazine online by baby monitor manufacturer Sproutling. Each kid has a unique story to tell about why they’re a maker.
So we interviewed 10 kids who make, craft, code, build, tinker, and hack, and got them to talk about what gets them to geek out. We also asked them how parents can encourage their own kids to chase their creativity.

It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
