Circuit Playground Express

The Circuit Playground Express was designed and created by Adafruit, and is one of the best purchases we've ever made!

This fascinating piece of hardware allows you to play around with its various onboard sensors and LEDs, making it easy to learn the world of electronics engineering. You can use CircuitPython to program and control the board. CirctuiPython is an amazing language based on Python itself, click here to visit Adafruit's CircuitPython official page.

This amazing board has everything you need to begin learning and programming electronics by providing access to various incorporated sensors. The following sensors and devices are onboard:

  • Thermistor (for plotting and programming Temperature based activity)
  • Microphone (for plotting and programming Sound based activity)
  • 10 RGBW Neopixels (for neat lighting projects)
  • 7 capacitive pads (for touch based projects)
  • 2 push buttons
  • 1 slide switch
  • 1 phototransistor
  • 8 input/output pins
  • And much much more!

We purchased this board to help teach our children how to program the real world with CircuitPython (physical computing). Stay tuned for a few projects we have begun!
