This classic physics experiment is a really fun one! You get to create a descent vehicle for an egg dropped from a great height that helps the egg land gently enough to avoid going SPLAT!
Instead of testing design iterations on precious eggs, we can first prove out our vehicles using the CLUE board! It’s packed with sensors and has a display and speaker for feedback — we’ll use those to study the impact g-force of our landing. Once we’re satisfied with the data, we can swap out for the more fragile ovoid!
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.
