Adafruit Circuit Playground Express
Many wearable computing and costuming projects make heavy use of the Circuit Playground Express. Get ready for DragonCon with that super cool costume with lights and sound. Tony Stark, anyone?
"From beginners to experts, Circuit Playground Express has something for everyone." - AdaFruit
After attending our Digital Electronics Lab, students can join our Elementary Intro to Programming lab to try more coding projects and fun group activities. Or they can join our Python Coding with Minecraft class to automate building things on a Minecraft server with Python code instead of by hand.
Older students entering middle school can join our more advanced Starter Labs with tools like Python, Java, App Development, and Unity3D.. Our Starter Labs are designed to allow students to continue and keep learning as long as they are interested. Many continue for a year or more.
