Cartoon Network USA Teams Up With Adafruit And Microsoft’s MakeCode For Educational Cartoon Character Themed Electronic Projects

Cartoon Network USA has teamed up with Microsoft’s computer coding programming environment – MakeCode and online electronics education/electronic components supplier – Adafruit for a series of Cartoon Network themed projects to help inspire young people to code and to create and construct their own electronic projects using paper or card and small electronic components. The partnership with Microsoft and Adafruit is Cartoon Network’s latest development for its ongoing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) initiative.

Projects include an electronic version of Ice King’s and Princess Bubblegum’s crown from Adventure Time, which have light and sound effects. Kids can also create their own version of Darwin from The Amazing World of Gumball which lights up and makes sounds when you shake him. There’s a glow-in-the-dark sign activity, a Finn cup lamp activity, a Jake “Hot Potato/Dog” game, a BMO music box activity that plays different sounds at a different tempo when moved and an activity based on the Enchiridion book from Adventure Time where players have to collect all the gems.

All project instructions require Adafruit Circuit Playground Express micro-controller device, Microsoft’s MakeCode coding development tool (either in the web browser or the Windows 10 app) and also some imagination and inspiration too.

Jill King, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Partnerships at Cartoon Network USA also commented on the technology learning partnership with Adafruit and Microsoft, she said:

“This generation of kids is the most diverse, mobile generation ever. They immerse themselves in content, not just as consumers, but as creators, We see this partnership as bringing best-in-class offerings together to inspire kids. With software from Microsoft, hardware from Adafruit, and characters that kids love from Cartoon Network, we hope to fuel their creative confidence, self-expression, and curiosity.”
