Summer is coming up fast which means graduation season is approaching. Students who have put in the time and work towards their degrees, diplomas and certificates will be turning their tassels. If you have a graduate you want to congratulate with a gift, Adafruit has you covered.
All next week we will be publishing a series of Gift Guides to help you select the perfect gift. Don’t know any Grads? No problem, these guides will be full of great projects and products for all makers. Even if students aren’t graduating they will most likely have some extra free time during the summer months. Why not help them keep learning and creating with an Adafruit project
