…be makers of things, not just consumers of things

Eagleflag
Today the President of the United States of America said

“…think about new and creative ways to engage young people in science and engineering, like science festivals, robotics competitions, and fairs that encourage young people to create, build, and invent — to be makers of things, not just consumers of things.”

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. YAY! Finally, a [semi-]competent president!

  2. Everytime he talks about science or engineering it just gives me a warm feeling inside. ‘The president gets it. The president cares!’

  3. Finally, we have a president that understands wealth is created by science and engineering not by lawyers and MBA’s.

  4. Wait, that’s the eagle from the Colbert Report intro! 🙂
