Via our friends over on CNXSoft, we hear about Kid Bright which is a Thai educational program revolving around the KidBright32 board manufactured by Gravitech. The National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) part of Thailand’s Ministry of Science and Technology designed KidBright32 board and courses to teach STEM to Thai students.
The board is based on Espressif Systems ESP32-WROOM-32 WiFI and Bluetooth module, and comes with large holes for power (5V/GND) and 6 digital inputs/outputs, smaller through holes for I2C and more I/Os, as well as an I2C header.
For interaction, the board has LEDs, two matrix LED displays, three buttons, a buzzer, an real-time clock, a light sensor, and a temperature sensor.
