MakeIt is a general show-and-tell for physical things that you’ve made, where Makers can talk about their projects, how they created, what resources they’ve discovered, and what they’ve learned along the way. MakerMeet is about showing off, learning, and asking about the “How” in How-To.
Anyone who’s interested in Making Things – inventors, designers, hobbyists, engineers, amateurs, the self-taught and the mavens alike – should join us.
The June kick-off meeting have a special guest presentation from CW&T of Pen-Type A fame, one of the first “mega” Kickstarter campaigns. Member presentations will include projects ranging from musical instruments, 3D printed home decor, a consumer electronics accessory and something special for the foodies in the audience.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
