It can be so much easier to get kids excited about making and coding and playing with cool ideas when they can bounce off characters and ideas they know and love. So it's great to see this collaboration giving kids a chance to embrace their love of Cartoon Network shows and turn that love into making things!

Microsoft's MakeCode is a simple visual tool for coding, while Adafruit is a brilliant place to buy great packages of tools for building great stuff with easy-to-use circuits and base-level computing hardware.
