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!

Check out the Summer of MakeCode for more information.

Adafruit loves MakeCode! Users of the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express can use MakeCode (with or without a Crickit attached) which makes projects with sensors and blinky lights easy & fun!

See the Adafruit Learning System for free, fun projects which use MakeCode to easily get things running how you’d like them to.

Have a fun summer from the Microsoft MakeCode team and Adafruit!

If you’re making fun things with MakeCode, post them in the comments below!
