Tinkering in a Digital Sandbox

At the NEIT Conference I got the chance to tinker with the Digital Sandbox, a new micro controller from Sparkfun Industries. Helpful for teaching programming and physical computing to students, learners can program it’s sensors and outputs with Arduino or graphic drag-and-drop code to control it. At my workshop, I learned how to use the Ardublock language to make a sound sensitive VU meter. There is also a digital experiment guide for teaching with the Digital Sandbox with 17 experiments available.
