NEW GUIDE: How to Construct Crosswords and Word Searches @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
Here’s a new guide in the Learning System that may be useful to educators and word lovers! John Park’s How to Construct Crosswords & Word Searches will show you how to get started making your own word puzzles. You can seed them with STEAM terms, your own favorite lingo, or vocabulary words you’re teaching.
Some elements of word crossword grid construction can be assisted by software, but some parts take hard work and a human touch. This guide will show you how to get a jump start using free online tools and downloaded software, plus tip on manual refinement.
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.
