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.

The space where the event was held looks fun too!
