What is coding? Can anyone do it? How do I start? #HourOfCode #makereducation
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
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
