Matt’s team is using CircuitPython for on High Altitude Balloons! Their team HABET (High Altitude Balloon Experiments in Technology) is part of a program called Make 2 Innovate. Make To Innovate (M:2:I) is an exciting program in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Iowa State University which engages students in hands-on projects to augment their understanding of engineering fundamentals – Make to Innovate (M:2:I) Department of Aerospace Engineering at Iowa State University.

Why choose CircuitPython? Matt writes –

“We had been programming it in C up till this launch, but with myself graduating next semester along with the Computer Engineer on our team it we needed to find a way to allow for ease of maintenance. When I found you guys had libs for the radio and GPS we decided to try that out. The radio portion worked fantastic.”


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.
