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!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

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.
