Our latest episode for STEM Chat is now up on You Tube! Happy Summer! It’s time to spend time outdoors and there are plenty of insect friends to observe from bees, butterflies to even the 17 year cicadas! We have lot of bug-related toys and books to share too
Diana and I just launched our new website www.stemchatclub.com. Sign up for our monthly email newsletter to be up to date on new things we are doing, when new episodes drop and printable PDFs. The Butterfly letter PDF will appear in our welcome newsletter for you to download! We will be back later this fall with full episodes. We will be covering Summer STEM Books in July and will be posting these in smaller videos. Catch us again this fall for full STEM Chat episodes.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
