Whether it is for a family reunion, holiday picnic, birthday party, or just a nice Tuesday evening, the warm weather and waning summer sunsets tend to bring people out of their homes and into each other’s company. These gatherings might have your local favorites – like bocce, cornhole, croquet, washers, or volleyball – but what about bringing a little problem-solving to your fun festivities?
Team up with the young (or young at heart) and see what unique solutions you can come up with. The ingenuity of your 7-year-old cousin may surprise you!
Each 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.
