Summer of MakeCode for Kids @MSMakeCode @microbit_edu @Jaqster
Microsoft MakeCode (makecode.com) is a web-based learning environment for kids and teens to create with technology. MakeCode takes a unique approach to computing education by combining the magic of making with the power of code as a way to make learning about computers and technology more accessible and interesting to a wider audience.
Over the next few weeks, they’ll be publishing some easy MakeCode projects that you can do with your kids at home over the summer using a different MakeCode product each week.
Grab your kids and a glue gun and come on the Summer of MakeCode tour with Microsoft!
Have a fun summer from the Microsoft MakeCode team and Adafruit!

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.
