This year’s Future Creators students were given the chance to develop their knowledge and skills through active participation in a series of creative project based learning tasks. All the students’ work was on display at a special exhibition in The Digital Hub’s Digital Exchange building, to coincide with the graduation. Some of this year’s projects include students designing and building a light box, bread-boarding, soldering and coding on Adafruit GEMMA microcontroller using Arduino IDE. Other young participants have been involved in building a motorized 3D-printed character called Zelda Breath of The Wild which has been brought to life using a motor and LEDs.
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.
