Advanced Manufacturing Hands-On Lab Manual featuring Circuit Playground Express

Intro to Advanced Manufacturing Lab Manual

Clint Weisgerber in the College of Technology, Vincennes University, has created a detailed manual as an introduction to advanced manufacturing. The course centers around Adafruit’s wonderful Circuit Playground Express board.

He states:

The Circuit Playground Express (CPX for short) is a great way to get your feet wet in the world of automation, electronics, and programming. 

The manual is very detailed on safety!

CPX Manual

There are multiple projects featuring Microsoft MakeCode for programming.

He says:

While I do try and relate these labs back to the accompanying classroom material, this manual is fairly standalone. As is always the case, the classroom material is more the theory and history while the lab is more the reality or the actual…Play around with trying to hook things up to the CPX…It’s up to you to go and actually do something with the knowledge and experience you pick up in this class.

You can see and download the document from Clint’s Google Drive.

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.
