MIT engineer Limor “Ladyada” Fried started Adafruit with the intention of making it a place where you could learn and play with electronics. The robot lunchbox alone is half the draw in the circuit playground express educator’s pack, but we also love everything else that’s in it. The pack includes over 35 little pieces you need to program the board three different ways.
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.
