We’re super excited to bring this brand new course to Netherton Library during February half term. Have an interest in Technology? Arts? Science? Maths? This one’s for you!
What will we be doing?
Using Circuit Playground we will explore electronics by using LED’s, sensors and real programming. You will also get to meet industry experts, role models and find out more about the exciting tech industry!
What is Circuit Playground?
Circuit Playground is a small device that is designed for you to practice programming on real hardware with no soldering or sewing required! It’s the perfect tool to experiment and play with, you even get to take it home at the end!
Who’s this course for?
11-14 yr old girls and boys
Live in the Netherton / North Liverpool area
No coding experience required, this is a beginners course!
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.
