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.

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.
