How to Use Python to Teach High School Physics #makereducation
Super useful piece from WIRED on how to use python in the physics classroom.
I recently facilitated a workshop for high school physics teachers in South Africa (two workshops actually—one in Johannesburg and one in Cape Town). The goal of the workshop was to introduce teachers to using python in physics. Since this was my first python-physics workshop, I feel I should share the details and some of the things I learned.

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.
