Not not everyone has access to high-end power tools – Jude Pullen shared this video on Youtube!
You don’t always need fancy saws, and power tools to work with metal. Even simple projects can be done with good scissors, tin-snips and – something a lot of engineers seem to have hardly ever heard of – NIBBLERS!
For relatively little cash, you can have use some great tools to speed up your prototyping, when plastic and card are not robust enough!
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.
