Helping Kids in Hospitals: An Incentive Spirometer in the Shape of a Blow Dart | #KidInventorsDay @RobotMakerGirl
An amazing project from Allie Weber aka @RobotMakerGirl – the motivation behind this project is as encouraging as its results and implementation. Watch:
Allie describes her Blow Dart Spirometer innovation and the inspiration behind it. It also includes some footage of her design and testing process for the second official prototype of the Blow Dart Spirometer.
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.
