If You Cheat In Engineering Classes…

Engineering. Serious Business.

[Editor’s note: Same thing goes for “financial engineering”]

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. Not related to the pic, but I have always loved your spam fighting resistor question that you use for comments. Have you had much trouble with spam since using it, and have you compared how it has fared to, say, reCAPTCHA?

  2. @mark – we have zero published spam on our blog. we love our CAPTCHA!

  3. Speaking of the CAPTCHA, I’ve used it before to decode resistors because I am still learning all this stuff.

    Great comment! 😉

  5. Nice. Interestingly, pre-med programs are also infamous for rampant cheating…

    RE: the CAPTCHA – I routinely log into this blog and click on the comments just to decode resistors. It’s excellent.

  6. Off topic, I’ve always wondered how would a person who is colour blind submit his/her comment if they can’t match the sliders on the resistor??
    My lab partner is colour blind, and now he’s a great electronics engineer…

    Love the note by the way 🙂

  7. If you become an engineer, you WILL piss off every machinist, CNC programmer, purchasing agent, bookkeeper, supplier, and representative of common sense your company will ever have.

  8. Nice. However, I’d rather have somebody cheat, and then fail the PE exam when they don’t have a Ti-89. If they pass the class easily, they won’t get stressed out and shoot up the school. They won’t get a job as an engineer and that way nobody dies 🙂

  9. Man, I just posted this comment because of the awesome captcha.

  10. I know a lot of engineers who cheated. This answers a lot of questions!

  11. I like the CAPTCHA! Brilliant idea. Usage of Alphabets in the sliders and to-be-scanned-book words for the picture should also work. Also decreases the margin of scanned messages.

  12. You are soo inviting people to write a script for the captcha 😀

  13. for your consideration:

    in which the CAPTCHA is discussed at great length.

  14. Nice captcha 😛

  15. You know what is unfortunate? If you are a bad ass at engineering, you will probably kill people… depending on which defense contractor you work for

  16. I’m just commenting to test your captcha 🙂

  17. Ok, let me see this captcha…

  18. Awesome captcha!!!

  19. captcha test 🙂

  20. Hi. I think you should tell something like that to AI students. Thanks!

    * btw, you captcha failed against me!! hehe ;P

  21. 🙂

  22. Agreed.
