1.21 Jigawatts Red Bull Creation Team is Streaming Live
The theme for this year’s Red Bull Creation challenge is ‘The Game of Games’. For those who don’t know about the RBC, 12 teams have 72 hours to build something based on a team. Along the way, Red Bull will toss us some curveballs, and change the rules. My team, 1.21 Jigawatts, is based out of The Mill in Minneapolis, MN. Click here to watch our live stream. For a rundown of every team’s live stream, head over to Hackaday.
We would love it if you could help us out. Send us your ideas for a great project that fits the ‘Game of Games’ concept via Twitter to @Jigawatts1_21.
We will keep you updated on our progress. Stay tuned!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
