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.
Facebook user John R shared this project for using the Circuit Playground to draw with color:
Daniel S shared this Tron Hand Scanner on Google Plus: Discord user Sigafoos shared “Circuit Jouster”: Elliot P Shared his project using a Circuit Playground as a robot controller on Twitter: And finally we selected one project to receive special honors Instagram user isabellavalentine shared this Hug Request glove: Thank you again to all the participants for making the community excellent! Here at Adafruit we’re happy to see what the community is up to. Whether you’re posting on our G+ Community Makers, hackers, artists & engineers, pinging us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook or joining us on Show and Tell, we’re seeing what you’re creating and it’s exciting!

As 2022 starts,
let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here. email@example.com VIDEO
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
