Former Adafruit Director of Wearable Electronics Becky Stern has a new series of videos she’s making for Digi Key. Becky has always done a stellar job of explaining what can be technically daunting in an entertaining and digestible way.
If this first part of the series (current playlist)an introduction to LEDs (underneath), is any indication this series is looking to offer more of its welcome brand of accessible tech education. Come on, Becky.

Stop the breadboard and soldering – start crafting right away! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clips, and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in minutes with the Drag-and-drop MakeCode programming sitelearn computer science using the CS Discoveries course on code.org, dive 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, a mini speaker, infrared reception and transmission, two buttons, a switch, 14 crocodile clips and numerous sensors: touch capacitive, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole world of electronics and coding awaits you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
