NEW PRODUCTS – Kano Kits:
Computer Kit with Pi 3 - https://www.adafruit.com/product/3257
Screen Kit - https://www.adafruit.com/product/3256

Have you ever wanted to build your own computer but never knew where to begin? Now’s your chance! With the award-winning Kano Computer Kit and Screen Kit you’ll not only build your own powerful computer, you’ll bring it to life!

With simple steps and playful projects you’ll learn how to code art, music, apps, games and more. It’s a fun way to make, play, and express your creativity with technology — built and coded by you. Note — the computer and the screen are sold separately.

Kano’s Computer Kit comes with 10 plug-and-play components including: a Raspberry Pi 3, a wireless keyboard, a DIY speaker, a custom case, power and HDMI cables, memory card, a USB power supply, an illustrated story book and 4 sheets of stickers and case cards. No prior knowledge is needed, and the Kano Book — a step-by-step storybook — is provided to help guide you.

The kit provides an introduction to various programming languages including Python and Javascript. Kids can learn Python through “Kano Blocks” by making Minecraft and Pong, and can dive into the world of Linux by going on a Terminal Quest and by making Snake.

Kano’s Screen Kit is a portable, playful HD display that you build yourself. It’s a new make-it-yourself moment, to demystify the display, and take Kano portable. A creative way to learn for kids and big kids, the Screen Kit has a unique modular design. It’s also perfect if you’re just looking to complete your Computer Kit.

Screen Kit includes:
-- 1280 x 800, 720p, 10.1″ LCD screen
-- Stand
-- Button board + wafer cable
-- Magnifying glass
-- HDMI cable
-- Power cable (mini-USB Y-splitter)
-- Storybook
-- Stickers

Kano is being used in hundreds of schools across the US, UK, EU, Asia and even parts of Africa.

Some children between 6-8 years old may require parental supervision when reading the Kano Book and assembling the Computer and Screen Kit components. Children 8 years and older are proven to be quite self sufficient on their Kano!

In stock and shipping now!

NEW PRODUCTS – @arrow_dot_com Presents: Back to School with LadyAda Packs
https://www.adafruit.com/arrow

So maybe it’s not “back to school” season any more – but here at Adafruit, we like to think that it’s always a good time to learn something new, which we guess means that everywhere we go is a proverbial school that we’re perpetually going back to.

To celebrate the continual season, we partnered with our good friends at Arrow Electronics to release custom packs of goodies called Arrow Presents: Back to School with LadyAda. Three packs are available for users with varying degrees of experience in electronics.

For beginners, there’s the Arduino Solder Free Pack. If you don’t know how to solder, the world of Arduino can be an intimidating one. This pack is designed to be solder-free, so even folks who don’t want to use a soldering iron, or aren’t ready to learn new soldering skills, can still pick up an Arduino and start to understand the code and complexities of single board computing.

Includes:
-- Arduino UNO R3
-- Assembled “Music Maker” MP3 Shield for Arduino
-- 4GB SD/MicroSD card containing Frequency by Bartlebeats
-- USB cable – standard A-B
-- 9V DC 1000MA regulated switching power adapter
-- USB powered speakers

For intermediate users, we offer the Learn to Solder Pack. Want to learn soldering but don’t know where to start? This pack is perfect for the maker who’s looking to learn how to solder or simply hone their skills. Each pack comes with essential soldering tools and kits, hand chosen by Ladyada, that will get you started on your soldering journey.

Includes:
-- Adjustable 30W 110V soldering iron
-- Solder Wire – 60/40 Rosin Core
-- Soldering iron stand
-- Flush diagonal cutters
-- Mintyboost kit
-- MiniPOV4 kit
-- Adafruit Metro 328 without headers

Finally, for advanced users there’s the Internet of Things Pack. For the student who’s mastered Arduino and soldering and is ready to take on more! This pack contains everything you need to get started in the world of the ‘Internet of Things.’ Centered around the Feather HUZZAH – our flagship IoT board based on the ESP8266 WiFi-enabled chip – this pack contains sensors, components, servos, and more.

Includes:
-- Assembled Feather HUZZAH w/ Feather – pre-soldered w/ stacking headers
-- Assembled FeatherWing OLED
-- Adafruit Parts Pal
-- DHT22 temperature and humidity sensor
-- Magnetic contact switch
-- PIR (motion) sensor
-- Micro servo
-- USB cable – A/micro B

Don’t miss out on these unique, carefully curated kits!

All three are in stock and shipping now!
