If you are up for a little soldering, look into stackable Arduino headers. (Feel free to shop around for those, adafruit was just the first result.) You could then use male jumpers and a breadboard to connect anything that fits in a breadboard.

Just be careful to avoid pins that the shield is already using.

  • How would I attach them to the shield?

  • First, desolder the old headers on the shield, then follow the Make It section of this tutorial to attach the new headers.
