An Arduino Uno Compatible Board with a twist #Arduino #Education
John Loeffler documents on Hackaday an Uno compatible board with some nice extras.
All the components are on the bottom giving ample space to clearly label all the pins and even label the second and third function of spme pins.
The Goal of the Uno Plus+ it to take the Arduino Uno, and make it even easier to use. An by adding isolated LED indicators on the IO Pins Debugging and Teaching can be even easier for teachers and student in the STEM Field. With the addition of a Stemma/Quiic connector and an integrated addressable (NeoPixel RGB) LED can speed the process of developing a Project.
An as always this project is completely open source and all design files will be updated to the most current revision.

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.
