EduBlocks

A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System: Using EduBlocks with Circuit Playground Express

EduBlocks is a web-based programming interface that is making the transition from block-based programming languages like Scratch to the syntax-based language Python easier.

If you’ve never programmed before and are new to block-based programming altogether, check out the block-based language MakeCode first. There’s a helpful guide on that here.

In this guide we will go through the EduBlocks editor interface and different code blocks.

The guide goes over how to upload code to the Circuit Playground Express and troubleshoot any issues. Then it goes over different applications and examples of how to program the CPX to blink an LED, switch NeoPixel colors with buttons, and lastly make a touch-based drum machine!

See this new guide here!

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.
