Thank you to everyone who participated in Adafruit Extra Credit this past August!! We got a ton of great submissions and it was exciting to see what everyone is doing with the Circuit Playground

We have selected a few projects that really highlight this excellent community.

Here are some projects we think exemplify what circuit playground is meant to/can do, with projects suitable from young engineers to the experienced makers.
