For anyone who’s curious about coding, or has a student who’s interested, but who might be a bit intimidated by it all here’s a short film that introduces you to coding made with the likes of will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Bill Gates, Ruchi Sanghvi, Elena Silenok, Vanessa Hurst, and Hadi Partovi. – via code.org
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.
