Pt 2735
Beckystern
Each hour we are featuring a woman we admire who is currently doing amazing work right in the tech/maker/art/science space. Woman of the hour, Becky Stern.

Becky Stern, is an artist, tutorial maker, and Associate Editor for Craft (craftzine.com) and Make: Online (makezine.com). She has a background in design & technology from Parsons the New School School for Design and enjoys freely sharing projects online through excellent documentation. Some of her favorite creative disciplines are sculpture, video, electronics, sewing, knitting, and cooking, sometimes all at once. She produces Craft’s bi-weekly tutorial video podcast covering topics from metalsmithing to homebrewing, machine knitting to electronic embroidery, and everywhere in between.

Her work is currently featured in the Open Source Embroidery exhibit – Museum of Craft and Folk Art, San Francisco, California, USA.


About today:

Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging (videologging, podcasting, comic drawing etc.!) to draw attention to the achievements of women in technology and science. Women’s contributions often go unacknowledged, their innovations seldom mentioned, their faces rarely recognized. We want you to tell the world about these unsung heroines, whatever they do. It doesn’t matter how new or old your blog is, what gender you are, what language you blog in, or what you normally blog about – everyone is invited.

Who was Ada? Ada Lovelace Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852) was one of the world’s first computer programmers, and one of the first people to see computers as more than just a machine for doing sums. She wrote programs for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, a general-purpose computing machine, despite the fact that it was never built. She also wrote the very first description of a computer and of software.


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.
