COMING SOON – Bots! Robotics Engineering with Hands-On Makerspace Activities By Kathy Ceceri


We are very excited to carry a new book by Adafruit Learning System author and maker Kathy Ceceri!

Robots are everywhere! They vacuum our houses, work in our factories, help us learn at school, and play with us at home. They sample rocks from other planets, survey disaster zones from the air, and bring back images from the bottom of the ocean.

Explore the roles robots play in our world and learn about the history, engineering, and key players from STEAM education expert Kathy Ceceri. Bots! Robotics Engineering with Makerspace Activities for Kids contains loads of hands-on robotics projects that help kids learn design, engineering, and coding. Find out what the future of robotics may bring, and how to develop your own innovative robots!

It’s just as beginner-friendly as our friend Mike Barela’s Getting Started with Adafruit Circuit Playground Express, and we love seeing more books covering Microsoft MakeCode#MakeRobotFriend!

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.
