Patchr is an online tool for learning how to design printed circuit boards (PCB). Their service allows you as a teacher to select a course for your class and walks your students through step-by-step lessons. At the end of the lesson, your students have their own unique and personally designed electronics project. The PCB is manufactured and shipped to your classroom along with the components for assembly and soldering. If you are interested in taking the next step in exploring the world of electronics in your class, check Patchr out!
The Click Clack Backpack is a custom, four-key mechanical keyboard backpack designed and built in Patchr. It connects to the Makey Makey v1.4+ just like our own backpacks and is limited only by your own imagination.
