DIY Energy– Panel Discussion Tonight in NYC

diyenergypanel

BoingBoing science editor Maggie Koerth-Baker will conduct a conversation tonight in NYC about DIY energy:

Bigger is better. Thats been the mantra of energy generation for a century. But its starting to change. More individuals want to generate electricity at home. More companies and municipal utilities are finding opportunities to produce electricity on a regional or community scale.

What does a decentralized energy future look like? What makes it possible? And how will it change our world? Join Maggie Koerth-Baker — science editor of BoingBoing.net and author of Before the Lights Go Out, a new book about the future of electricity — for a conversation about DIY energy featuring Chris Hackett of the Science Channels Stuck With Hackett, Susan Covino of PJM Interconnect, one of the independent organizations that controls movement of electricity around the grid, and Lisa Margonelli, a senior policy fellow at the New America Foundation.

RSVP requested.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
