The Pixel Kit is great for iterative learning. I asked my son if he could create a little animation for me to best show off the kit’s capabilities. He wanted to build a variation on his countdown timer, and decided the best way to show off the kit’s prowess was to add in a random light function at the end. - GeekDad
