NEW GUIDE: Back to School – Kits and Project Packs
Back to School season is here!
Saying farewell to summer isn’t easy. As September looms near, however, we can pump ourselves up for the Back to School season by remembering Knowledge is Power. There’s no better way to learn than to tackle a project with friends and classmates, building and brainstorming together. We’ve put together a guide to some of our favorite kits and project packs that range from the beginner level to kinda complex and plenty of fun and flashy stuff in between.
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.
