Adafruit – NYC public schools

Pt 2622
After a request from a NYC public school we were set up to be a vendor! Adafruit is now vendor # ADA216659 in the NYC FAMIS system. This means any public school in NYC can now purchase electronics from Adafruit – so, if you’re a NYC public school and buy electronics, email us and we’ll hook you up with some sweet discounts!


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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

  1. Congratulations. Hope this leads to some positive changes in the curriculum in the schools in the area 🙂

  2. Which school? 🙂

  3. if the school(s) want to post here, that’s up to them – we don’t share any customer information.

  4. That’s really great to see you guys working with public schools. On a recent field trip I spent a while speaking to my son’s elementary school teachers about trying to get more hands on learning experiences like electronics and robotics in the classroom.
