Use with students?

by rmisuraca on Wed Sep 27, 2017 12:11 pm

I am a teacher new to physical computing. I was just about to order the Circuit Playground Classic for my class when I came across the Circuit Playground Express. I would love to order and use the Express version with my students since it works with makecode. I have been using makecode with our micro:bits.

What's a teacher to do? Your website says "Please note: This initial run of CPX is for developers and makers only! We're still adding full support for all of the cool sensors to MakeCode/CircuitPython/Arduino. There will be many drastic changes in APIs and functionality, so it is not ready for use with students or beginners: here be dragons!"

When will the Circuit Playground Express be ready for teacher purchase? Student use?

This question comes up a fair amount. See these for some feedback:

I think the important part is that the hardware is considered finalized. It's just software updates that will be occurring.
