From the Forums: Swedish Year 9 Students’ ‘Portable’ (Wearables) Projects
Year 9 students in Gothenburg, Sweden were tasked with creating projects combining engineering & crafts, and developed several “portables” (aka wearables) including a theft-proof bag, exercise garments (think pulse sensor heartbeat monitor), and even a ‘dating’ brooch. All the projects utilized the Circuit Playground and the students are going on to demonstrate and explain their wearables at an upcoming gathering in Brighton, UK.
Thanks to Staffan Melin for letting us know and you can find more information about their endeavors here and here (PDF).
Always great to see Circuit Playground in the wild for individual and group learning!
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.
