Thanks to a post from Matt Patrick Walsh in the Elementary Music Teachers Facebook Group, I was able to discover the music creation app SoundForest. As stated on the website, “SoundForest is a mini music maker that allows you to instantly compose a song using a collection of musical creatures. Compose a loop by tapping animal instruments and mix them into a hypnotic tune. Create a musical ecosystem with SoundForest.”
SoundForest can be used in a class with 1:1 devices, a class with a few devices, or a class with one device. The app is iOS only, which I hope eventually becomes a web-based app. However, the app is free!
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.
