We have a new opportunity for local college students to build a project in the LVL1 hackerspace that’s near campus. The internships are for University of Louisville engineering undergraduates, but we are thinking about how to expand to other cities and schools in the future! These students are receiving Co-op credit (it’s a between-semester internship required by many engineering schools) and we’ll be interviewing them to see just how the hackerspace internship fits into their education.
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.
