This week on the NewsHour, we examine why women lag behind in some areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics(also known as STEM) and what we lose by losing women in the hard sciences. Join us for a live chat at noon ET Friday, April 27, with Judy Woodruff on what can be done to encourage more young women to pursue careers in STEM fields. Submit your questions below or tweet them [email protected] using the hashtag #WomenInSTEM.
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.
