Final Projects from the UMass ‘Make’ Class, Spring 2018 #NeoPixels #RaspberryPi #Arduino #Making

Blog Post - Projects from 'Make' Class 290M

Cheers to the neat designs from the Make — A Hands-on Introduction to Physical Computing class at UMass this past spring semester.

The class ended with a final project where students work in two-person teams for 6 weeks to complete a project of their choice. The basic requirement is that it must be a physical computing project that involves both constructing hardware and developing software. The outcome was really satisfying as many of the projects are truly impressive and/or innovative. It’s particularly so as for many students this was the first time they have ever learned about electronics and Arduino.

The projects include 8x8x8 Neopixel Cube projectDumb MirrorMint Drawing TinPixelLightRadio FirefliesVoice-Controlled Pong, and Bone Appétit.

Check out this presentation and the blog post for more information.


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.
