Maker Spotlight: Kathy Ceceri – Paper and Fabric Inventions, Making Simple Robots & more @KathyCeceri

Kathy Ceceri

At Maker Faire, I finally got to meet Maker and author Kathy Ceceri. She does educational programs for upper elementary to high school-level kids. And she’s now using the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express in her projects: all the capabilities & built-in sensors at a low price, no wiring or soldering allows for kids to make their own robots in a 90 minute class.

Kathy has also authored many books, some of which are below:

  • Making Simple Robots: Exploring Cutting-Edge Robotics with Everyday Stuff
  • Robotics: DISCOVER THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE with 20 PROJECTS (Build It Yourself)
  • Fabric and Fiber Inventions: Sew, Knit, Print, and Electrify Your Own Designs to Wear, Use, and Play With
  • Make: Paper Inventions: Machines that Move, Drawings that Light Up, and Wearables and Structures You Can Cut, Fold, and Roll


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
