Coding with the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express

Design

Have you always wanted to code? Need a starting point? This is your blastoff into computing and launch pad for more advanced Bellingham Makerspace tech classes. Price includes your own Adafruit Circuit Playground Express (CPX) - a small, powerful, friendly computer with plenty of built-in functions. You'll learn the cornerstones of coding: Program flow: Instructions, repetition, decision-making. Variables: count, measure, and remember things. Interfacing: Communicate with sensors, lights, sound, and more. You'll create your own CPX projects using Microsoft's MakeCode. In later classes, you’ll expand your knowledge using programming languages like Arduino and CircuitPython and connect to diverse electronic devices.
