I have a son and 3 daughters. My son is about to be 10 and we’ve done a few kits together (a couple from your site and a couple more based on the Amazing tutorials you folks write). Thank you for the level of education you sneak in beside the “Wow! This is aweosme!”.
More importantly, I wanted to directly thank Ms. Fried. My eldest daughter is 7, and she loves math. I have recently shown her this site and several videos from it to show her that girls who like math and science can stick to it and do amazing things.
Thank you for being a role model to a little girl in Canada that her dad can be ok with. Hopefully she learns to solder well faster than her brother did.
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.
