Getting Started With Steven Universe!

Cartoon Network, Microsoft MakeCode and Adafruit announced in early January 2019 that they are teaming up for a set of new projects and tutorials for kids to learn the basics of coding and stretch their creative muscles.
The hope is that by using Cartoon Network’s fan-favorite characters from shows such as “Steven Universe”, “Adventure Time”, “The PowerPuff Girls” and “The Amazing World of Gumball” in projects incorporating Microsoft and Adafruit’s tech tools, they will appeal even to kids who wouldn’t consider themselves coders.
“With software from Microsoft, hardware from Adafruit, and characters that kids love from Cartoon Network, we hope to fuel their creative confidence, self-expression, and curiosity.”
