This last weekend, Allie over at Geeky Faye Art explored and finished the second part of their SparkFun Inventor’s Kit (SIK) adventure: sound! From learning about buzzers, to building a digital trumpet, to playing a game of Simon Says, they did it all! Keep in mind that unlike our first announcement to check out the Geeky Faye Art channel, this stream has already aired, but don’t worry: there are going to be more opportunities to check out future streams. Read to the bottom to be sure to stay up to date!
This stream is pretty invaluable to anyone who’s been looking for a place to start learning about programming and electronics. We are going to get a bit into what the SIK is, right below, but make sure to check out the Geeky Faye Art YouTube channel if you are looking to learn some new skills in a variety of maker projects!
In case you would like to pick up your own SIK, you can pick one up here! The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit (SIK) is a comprehensive all-in-one kit that teaches embedded electronics through fun, project-based circuit building with no soldering and no programming experience necessary. The SIK v4 is organized around five projects that progress in difficulty, building on the skills learned in each of its 16 circuits. Create games, robots, alarms, sensors and more, while learning basic concepts of electricity and programming.
