Meet 3 Teen Girls Who Made Their Own Apps — While Still In High School #STEM
When it comes to coding, Gen Z is proving itself a force to be reckoned with. This week at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, app developers the world over descended on San Jose, CA, armed with fresh apps and ideas for a series of labs, talks, and consultations with Apple experts, and we got to talk to three such developers — all of whom are 18 or younger.
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.
