CircuitPython powered Snowflake boards! @stanford @stanford_ee #Stanford_EE #lab64

Snowflakes

maholli/snowflake: snowflake PCBs w/ SAMD21 and neopixels. Max via discord writes –

lab64 snowflake contest designs were featured (2 snowflake designs)! We hope you are enjoying your beautiful snowflake PCBs with neopixels and capacitive touch sensing.

The event was held to get students excited about electronics regardless of their experience. Students could pick up a snowflake at various “stages,” whether it be presoldered, half-soldered, unprogrammed, etc.

We held a snowflake “design contest” that accepted SVG submissions for the board outline, then I slapped a quick SAMD21 circuit on it and had a few dozen made.

Students assembled the board following the interactive BOM: https://maholli.github.io/snowflake/

The event is just one of many attempts at sparking excitement for building/making. He’s always looking for new ways to show students (and the administration!) the importance of actually executing on ideas/designs.”

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.
