Dear Adafruit,
yes, this message begins with a huge thank you for all you are doing. Yours is a wonderful project!

Second, I just wanted to let you know that we’ve been using some of your parts in a junior high school project aimed at increasing ethnic and gender diversity in STEM education/careers. Our “renewable energy cell phone rechargers” combine part of your “USB, DC & Solar Lipoly Charger” with a circuit our students build on a mini-breadboard. Their project for the rest of the semester is to explore different sources of renewable energy they can tap into to possibly get their cell phones “off the grid.”

You’ve served as a fantastic resource in this endeavor, so we wanted to send you a heartfelt thank you.

Best,

Gerardo

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
