#ADA11 – Erin RobotGrrl, Robot builder and iOS & Mac developer

6153967548 7136A9A0Ae

Erin is one of our favorite Robot builders, she makes and releases open-source software, she has weekly “Robot Party” hangouts. She’s a robot rock star with a bright future ahead. Here’s a bit about her, in her own words…

Howdy, I am known to many as the RobotGrrl. I started building robots when I was 13, with a Lego Mindstorms kit. Since then, my passion and energy for this exciting and challenging art form has been growing. Through numerous science fair projects and hobby projects, this website is all about documenting what I am doing, aiming to share the learning process and the acquired knowledge with others.

One of the areas that I am most interested in is sociable robotics. How can a robot interact with a human better, such that it seems like there is no barrier between the two? Alternatively, how can we pronounce this communication barrier more, in order to show that the robot is a sepperate species, and comes from a different culture? The depth of sociable robotics is immense, which makes it mesmerizing with its endless list of questions.


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.
