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!
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.
