Next week kicks off Computer Science Education Week where we celebrate computing pioneer Rear Admiral Dr. Grace Murray Hopper from December 3-9.
Encourage your students to code with an #HourOfCode next week.
Explore and complete our Swift playgroundbook “My Mini Race Car” within the Swift playgrounds app available for the iPad. Our Swift playgroundbook uses the Adabox 002 – Making Things Move – Feather Bluetooth LE Mini Robot where you can create a little robot rover that responds to the commands you give it.
It’s the perfect gift for folks who are just getting started in the world of DIY electronics and programming.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
