The goal here is to help provide whatever you need to integrate a maker project into your curriculum with exactly the amount of time and instruction you are comfortable with. See the (graphic below) for a link to your content area.
We’re extending a special invitation to teachers with little to no maker project experience. See if anything here strikes your interest, and then let’s talk. Or, let’s just talk! Projects like these will help your students find even more avenues of engagement with your course concepts.
The project ideas are grouped according to learning areas for educators:
A great resource for anyone looking to incorporate making into education.

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.
