Please note: This initial run of CPX is for developers and makers only! We're still adding full support for all of the 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.

Circuit Playground Express is the next step towards a perfect introduction to electronics and programming; taking the original Circuit Playground Classic and making it even better! More sensors are packed in, and it is even easier to program. You can now start your journey with Microsoft MakeCode block-based or Javascript programming. Then, you can use the same board to try CircuitPython, with the Python interpreter running right on the Express. As you progress, you can advance to using Arduino IDE, which has full support of all the hardware down to the low level, so you can make powerful projects.

Because you can program the same board in 3 different ways - the Express has great value and re-usability. From beginners to experts, Circuit Playground Express has something for everyone. If you are looking for our original, Arduino-only Circuit Playground, check out the Circuit Playground Classic.

The board is round and has alligator-clip pads around it so you don't have to solder or sew to make it work. You can power it from USB, a AAA battery pack, or with a Lipoly battery (for advanced users). Circuit Playground Express has built-in USB support. Built in USB means you plug it in to program it and it just shows up, no special cable or adapter required. Just program your code into the board then take it on the go.
