It can seem like a daunting task for school districts to try and implement an entirely new subject in their curriculum. And at a time when 90% of parents would like their children to learn computer science, just 40% of schools actually teach it.
For thousands of schools, that changed this summer.
For the third year in a row, we invited middle and high school teachers from across the country to become computer science teachers and join the fastest growing movement in education.
Each Tuesday is EducationTuesday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts about educators and all things STEM. Adafruit supports our educators and loves to spread the good word about educational STEM innovations!
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.
