#MakerCamp is about to begin this AM! We’ve teamed up with the folks at Google to create an awesome virtual summer camp, as part of our Summer of Making activities. It’s 30 days of 30 projects with online how-tos, camp counselors and “expert” makers to help you with your builds, G+ hangouts, online field trips, and much more. It’s going to be a blast. The camp is free, there’s no registration, and you can plug in and out as you please. The camp is directed at teens 13-18, but cyber-campers and at-home tinkerers of all ages can participate, too. Find out all of the details here.… And get ready to go camping. Just “Follow” (MAKE) on Google+ to join in the fun.
Ladyada will be on an upcoming Thursday for Maker Camp on Google+ stay tuned for details!
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.
