Projects from “A Coding/Engineering Experience for Business Undergraduates” #MakeCode #CircuitPython #CircuitPlaygroundExpress @gallaugher

Professor John Gallaugher posts in the Adafruit Forums about the projects his students created building microcontroller based projects (for business students).

Realized I hadn’t shared what my students did. Thanks for advice & here are some links to materials that you’re welcome to use (if you do, please let me know!).
We had one session introducing MakeCode and another CircuitPython.

Students prepared by following along with some videos (all shared on YouTube – you’re welcome to use or suggest updates).

I had all students buy the CPX Base kit + I got a grant to distribute NeoPixel Light Strips w/Alligator clips to the students. I also had a stash of some additional components – copper tape, conductive paint, extra alligator clips, a desktop speaker they could use for amplification.

Links to materials & videos of student projects are below:

MakeCode: … 4a49f102ba

CircuitPython: … daa1bf8434
The quick-cut, 1 sec / project video above is a fun one to watch.

Videos for these & other projects (including a series on how to build an iOS controlled Pi robot) are in playlists at: … EBhNXzENHQ

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, 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.
