Back to School Gift Guide: Group Projects for Students

AdaBot wears a purple backback and faces away from the viewer towards a large chahlkboard that says "Back to School" in all capital letters.

Learning is so much better when we're doing it together (well, almost always better, unless your group likes to slack off, but we prefer to look on the brightside)! Anyway, to help kick off #BacktoSchool month here's a quick look at some of our favorite Adafruit kits and guides for great group projects! Don't forget to take a look at our projects/kits category in the Adafruit Store and our searchable Adafruit learning system full of online tutorials!

Just note that the guides listed here do correspond to many of the products listed here. It is not, however, completely comprehensive and meant to be more of an inspiration for a starting point. We recommend reading the Learn Guides in full and checking out the full list of featured products needed for each project. Happy making!
