Hour of Code And Computer Science Education Week Is This Week!! @codeorg #HourOfCode #CSEdWeek
Hour of Code runs from December 3 through December 9. The idea is to introduce people to coding in one hour segments. Each day this week the Adafruit blog will share a fun story or activity to help you connect with Hour of Code and take the mystery out of coding!
What will you create?
Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials in over 45 languages. No experience needed.
Ages 4 to 104.
You can find activities designed for preschoolers all the way to grades 9 and above.
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.
