Chromebooks and the Circuit Playground


I’m trying to figure out how to make these circuit playgrounds work on a chromebook. I went to the website and ran the test. All was good.

I then went to unit 6 lesson 3. Looked at Bubble 4 called “Using the LED.” Ran the program. I get the success screen.

I then go to Bubble 5 called “Using the LED” and I get VERY inconsistent results. Enough that I feel this was a waste of money. It just keeps coming up saying “Make sure your board is plugged in.”

What do I do?



Hi Dan,

Can you report this as a bug at or in the menu at the top right corner of the Code Studio screen? That way we can investigate the problem a little easier.
