Boston College Professor John Gallaugher isn’t shy about asking for assistance with his course materials. Last Fall, he asked for crowdsourcing hands-on builds for future exams (first class in coding/making using CircuitPython).
The above video shows 9 questions & working solutions for a CircuitPython mid-term. Students have CPBs, Arduino Nano RP2040s, STEMMA QT 12 key cap touch sensor, temp, buttons, and proximity plus all you see in this video (servo, potentiometer, speaker, and a NeoPixel strip).
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.
