Elizabeth sent this blog tip into us and says “I have shared this project before but I thought it would be
interesting for people to see again. I’m a lawyer and a maker and RGB was
one of my heroes. My daughter Josie and I made this project together last
This DIY video demonstrates a STEM project which uses a circuit playground express from Adafruit and is coded using CircuitPython. A painting is created and public statements are recorded and modified to fit on the CPX. When the pad is touched the CPX is activated to start one of several audio clips from RBG.
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.
