The ‘Science Brothers’ is an non-profit outreach program aimed at getting elementary and middle school students interested in STEM (Science Technology Education Mathematics) activities. The program centers around the dynamics of two brothers, who specialize in different fields, argue over whose science is ‘cooler’. The result is a fun and wacky trip exploring different premises in science; light, sound, energy; with examples and demonstrations from the realms of chemistry, physics, and electricity.
The program is based out of the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD)and funding is provided by National Defense Education Program (NDEP) grants. The program is free for schools and shows can be requested through our Contact Form. All Bay County Schools are encouraged to schedule a show. Schools in nearby areas can also inquire about the possibility of having the Science Brothers come and perform
Bill was at our show-and-tell on Sat, great stuff!
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.

Hey thanks for posting this guys, every bit of media coverage helps to validate the program and gives us better chances for continued Federal Funding, which we haven’t had much luck getting and had to fill in the gaps with our our own money.
I’m going to have a full write-up in the next few weeks of all the things I built for the show, including my new LED Labcoat and controller when it’s finished and how it lets me control audio cues from my wrist. So stay tuned.
