That’s right! We’re sponsoring this months contest and offering a $200 Adafruit Gift Card to the first place winner. There’s also a RoboC2 3D printer and spools filament being award. Second place gets a Micro 3D printer from M3D and two spools of filament. Third place gets a 3D printing pen, so there’s something cool for all three winners!
There’s tons of great entries, all of which are unique and creative. It’ll be tough for Pedro and I to pick just three! So if you have a design you’ve made for a previous electronics project, consider entering in the contest!
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. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
