sugru is giving away free product to educators — accepting project proposals thru December 16th! From the sugru blog:
The biggest challenge in any creative process is to embrace failure. Lots of you teachers, lecturers and group leaders want to foster a hands-on creative process in your students. You want them working fast, failing fast, and learning even faster. Improving a design or invention with constant real-life testing.
We know that sugru is a great material for prototyping ideas and testing stuff out so we thought we would set up sugru PROJECTS, it’s a simple idea where we give schools, colleges and universities free sugru to run great projects.
If you run a course just send us a project brief that uses sugru as a prototyping material and we will send you enough free sugru to run the project with your students. We’re not quite sure what’s going to happen but we know its going to be exciting.
They will select the best submissions and send out some free stuff! Entries can be from anywhere, worldwide! Go here for more info.
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.
