It’s cool to see this as it’s been part of years-long project of celebrating skills with physical and digital badges. We’ll be rolling out a really big system shortly that everyone will be able to participate in – seeing a hackerspace quickly adopting these is great 🙂
For now check out our badges section in the shop and educators section. If you’re working on some amazing project over the holidays, you’ll soon be able to earn free badges as well!
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.
