Microsoft MakeCode Circuit Playground! @msmakecode @MicrosoftEDU #MakeCode
Here at Adafruit we’re proudly displaying the Circuit Playground Express trophy that the Microsoft MakeCode team sent us yesterday! We’re always excited to celebrate hands-on computing education and even more excited when there are Circuit Playground Expresses, MakeCode, and trophies involved 🙂
Microsoft MakeCode brings computer science to life for all students with fun projects, immediate results, and both block and text editors for learners at all different levels.
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.
