Adafruitspotting Across the Border During #HourOfCode in Vancouver, Canada | @codeorg @MicrosoftVan @microsoftcanada
Spotted some Adafruit components & parts in tweets from Microsoft in Education Canada and Microsoft Vancouver (and participants) as part of their #HourOfCode event. The outstanding winner seen in the tweets? You guessed it: Circuit Playground Express! Compatible with Microsoft MakeCode, CircuitPython or the Arduino IDE, this round board contains a smörgåsbord of sensors, 10 NeoPixels, microphone and mini speaker, and of course the alligator clip-friendly I/O pins that make the Circuit Playground Express an ideal tool for kids and advanced makers alike to quickly prototype and learn with.
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.
