Since President Obama declared that computer science was for all, strides have been made to make it more accessible. The College Board created AP Computer Science Principles to demystify the concepts. Schools like the STEM3 Academy provide students with autism, Asperger’s syndrome or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder with rich, high-tech school experiences. A growing number of educators have added a dash of computational thinking to classes.

So this year, celebrating Computer Science Education Week really felt like it was for all.

At the A. Harry Moore School, where our students have low-incidence disabilities, we believe that IEP means “I expect progress,” not just individualized education program.

Last week, there were many stations at our coding carnival that used the principles of Universal Design for Learning and differentiation based on the diverse needs of our learners.

Adafruit_Learning_SystemEach Tuesday is EducationTuesday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts about educators and all things STEM. Adafruit supports our educators and loves to spread the good word about educational STEM innovations!


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.
