Classic Circuit Playground obsolete?

I have a class set of the Adafruit Classic Circuit Playgrounds. They don’t work well with’s lessons. Usually they don’t connect. When they do connect, they disconnect themselves. I think they are obsolete at this point.

Has anyone found a different use for them? Or a workaround?

They usually work for me, but there are a lot of moving parts. If you are having a specific technical issue that you can’t resolve, you can reach out to

Often, it’s an IT issue, but the newer ones are a bit more reliable …
