The style that seems to be ubiquitous with futuristic and modern turns 100! Fun, interactive, article from New York Times:
In April 1919, the architect Walter Gropius founded one of the most influential art and design schools ever: the Bauhaus. Students learned to focus on simplicity and functionality. Teachers favored primary colors and bold shapes. Seeing the school as a hotbed of utopian intellectualism, the Nazis forced its closure in 1933, scattering Bauhaus teachers, students and aesthetics across the globe.
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.
