Combining coding and paper circuits has never been cuter!
Created by Jie Qi and illustrated by K-Fai Steele, Love to Code: Volume 1 – Microsoft MakeCode Edition is a full-colored, easy-to-approach book that will make everyone fall in love with coding. It’s geared towards educators and young makers who want to dive in Microsoft’s block-based language.
Your helpful and adorable spirit animal guide is Fern the Frog, who’ll introduce you to her friends and the “sometime hard, but fun” concepts in electronics and debugging.
This mini-tome is wonderfully interactive and includes over 160 pages of craft paper circuits for you to show what you’ve learned about variables and conditional statements. By the end of the book, you’ll create beautiful light-fading effects with loops and multithreading.
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.
