Show and Tell: Josie’s Recess Robots #ShowAndTell #Adafruit @Adafruit
On the Adafruit Show and Tell program last night, Josie demonstrating some wonderful projects:
First off, in video above, are version one and two of her recess robot. Like all great experimenters, she built a version one, saw where it could be made better, and built a version two. Both feature Adafruit controllers in her own decorated case. Her mom says:
She is really having fun making her little “show” and makecode and the CPX are the keys to her success! For instance, she never would have started the recess robot if she couldn’t have started in makecode with the CPX. She was able to move to the Flora and Arduino programming when she saw that she really needed to to make the robot differently and not have her teacher hold the box out the window. Thank you so much.
We also received a link to another project by Josie – a capacitive touch musical instrument she built using various fruits and other items. Then we are treated to her rendition of Mary had a Little Lamb.
Congratulations Josie on your hard work and accomplishments. We hope you enjoy displaying your As Seen on Show and Tell sticker and we’d love to see your work on Show and Tell again!

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
