When you’re a trio of superpowered kindergarteners tasked with saving the world on a weekly basis, you’ve got to use every tool in the old toybox. Thankfully for an animated world constantly in peril, this year’s rebooted Powerpuff Girls have picked up a few new tricks along the way.
Blue-eyed, pig-tailed sister Bubbles, for one, has kept up with the times by learning to code – a fact that plays a key role in this week’s episode of the program, along with Cartoon Network’s recent efforts to help foster STEM skills among their young viewers.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. 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.
