Code.Org has Launched New CS Discoveries Course with Adafruit’s Circuit Playground

We’re ecstatic to share this exciting news from Code.org!

Code.org has partnered with Adafruit to create a classroom kit of the Adafruit Circuit Playground Classic boards and accessories, based on the popular Arduino platform, for use with the new course. Today, Code.org announced it will subsidize a classroom kit for every teacher participating in its 2017-18 CS Discoveries professional learning program.

For schools where more than half the students are on free or reduced meal plans, the Arduino kits will be provided to teachers free of charge. For other teachers in the program, Code.org and Adafruit will subsidize 70% of the cost. Based on the professional learning program’s registration numbers, over 11,000+ Circuit Playground Classic boards will be subsidized to help students learn physical computing.
