This past week, the K-1/4-5 science teacher sent me the website link to whalesynth.com. This website was new to me and I have had a wonderful time making music with it.
To make music with whalesynth, you click your mouse or touch your screen and draw over it. It will produce various whale songs. By clicking on the waves, you can create a chorus effect of your whale songs. When you click on the anchor, it makes your sounds dive deeper into the ocean. The pleats swirl the echoes of the sound. The sonar lets the user play with a variety of whale clicks, pops, and beats. By clicking on the whale, you can change to three different species with three unique sounds. Finally, the site built an Ableton Live instrument for you, but you will need Ableton Live to use it. You can download samples if you do not have the instrument.
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.
