Circuit Playground® is here, and it’s the best way to practice programming on real hardware.  No soldering or sewing required!

Adafruit’s Circuit Playground® features an Atmel ATMega32u4 microprocessor, just like Adafruit’s Flora® circuit board that we use in our Wearable Electronics classes.  Circuit Playground is round and has alligator-clip pads around it, making it easy to connect and disconnect as you debug and make changes to your system.  You can power it from USB, a AAA battery pack, or a Lithium-PolymerBattery (Li-Poly) for fantastic  portability.  Program your code into it, then take it on the go.  Circuit Playground® is so powerful and versatile, giving it many useful applications for projects and solutions to problems! 

 

In this course, NextGen SmartyPants® teaches not only how to use Circuit Playground® but also how to get up to speed quickly to apply it outside of our class!  We’ve built our lesson plans using Microsoft® MakeCode®, which is similar to the drag-and-drop Scratch® programming language they are used to.  In addition to programming Circuit Playground®, MakeCode® also makes it easy to learn Javascript® and how to apply it to controlling circuits, too!

 

“Advanced Circuits: Programming Adafruit® Circuit Playground® using MakeCode® and Javascript®” is recommended for Ages 13-Adult.  Previous experience in Coding and Circuits are recommended prior to taking this class.  Certain electronic hardware and components may be needed to be purchased for this course.
