Microsoft Announces @Lego_Education #Mindstorms #EV3 Programmability with @MSMakecode #MakeCode

MakeCode with Lego

Today Microsoft announced MakeCode for LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3! It is the culmination of months of engineering, design and user testing work with LEGO Education.

LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 brings technology and computer science to life with hands-on, project-based learning using the familiar LEGO bricks. And now with MakeCode support, students can use easy drag-and-drop block coding, or JavaScript text programming from a browser to make their creation escape from a maze, detect different colored objects, or turn into a musical instrument.

Microsoft MakeCode can be used by a number of different Maker platforms including Adafruit Circuit Playground Express. Check out:

What are you going to build?? Post up in the comments!


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.
