One of my favorite engineering channels on YouTube is Practical Engineering. On it, Grady usually breaks down some mechanical engineering concept and uses wonderful experiments to demonstrate the ideas that he’s trying to get across.
In this video from a few years back (that I just discovered), he does something different. He had been learning welding and wanted to pass on some of what he was learning while he was learning it. The video is obviously geared towards welding newbies and beginner hobbyists.
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.
