Pykids Learn Electronics with CircuitPython and Microcontrollers #CircuitPython #Gemma #Adafruit

Pykids

This summer Pykids participated in research projects across various subjects in STEM, including chemistry, biology, computational modeling, computer science, and much more. One topic:

Electronics with CircuitPython and Micro controllers

With this “project based learning” approach, students used hands on Python application to create an electronic product , a blingy Christmas tree, with Adafruit microcontroller Gemma M0.

Students learnt how to code , build an electronic circuit, cut, strip and solder wires to create connections, create 3D print design and finally print the model and assemble the final product — Whew!

Their CircuitPython work was inspired by this blog post by Les Pounder.

Read more on Medium about their work.


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.
