“4-H grows confident kids with life skills to thrive in today’s world & succeed in their boldest dreams tomorrow.” About a year ago Adafruit started the process of working with 4H to have an official 4H branded version of Circuit Playground Express. We applied and were notified today we were accepted!
…and soon we’ll have even more specific 4-H projects and products.
This is a special day here for us at Adafruit, a lot of folks helped getting all the things necessary before, during, and after the application process as well as helping with the projects and more over the last year together. Thank you: Alaina, Betsy, Caroline, David, Dorothy, Evan, Freeman, Jen, Josh, Mike, Sara, Tara, Teddy, the USDA, and a few more that we’ll add here if we forgot anyone!
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.
