In this challenge we worked with the Iowa City Home School Assistance Program on one of their maker projects. For this project the students sewed drawstring bags, then lit them up with LEDs. In addition to the classic maker skills of sewing, the students used conductive thread, twinkler circuits and LEDs.
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.
