Circuit Playground Classes from The Square School #MakerEducation

The first one is coming up soon! Check it out: Design Camp: Circuit Playground Tickets, Tue, Feb 20, 2018 at 9:00 AM.

This camp is for young people between the ages of 7-12. Participants will spend the day designing and exploring a variety of circuits. Our day will start with paper circuits and progress to the Circuit Playground Express, a small micro controller board that is great for learners at all levels of electronics. We’ll start programming with MakeCode, a web-based code editor that uses blocks, similar to Scratch. This is not a crash course in writing code, rather it’s a playful day, where students will explore their interests and practice creative thinking. We’ll recharge outside during a snack break, recess in a local park, and lunch. An additional material fee has been added for the day and participants will be able to take home a personal Circuit Playground Express to continue their learning at home.

Adafruit_Learning_SystemEach Tuesday is EducationTuesday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts about educators and all things STEM. Adafruit supports our educators and loves to spread the good word about educational STEM innovations!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
