Maker Camp, sponsored by MAKE magazine, is a virtual summer camp for teens, with a focus on creating, building, and discovering. We’ll be making 30 awesome projects in 30 days on Google+. Maker Camp is free and open to all, and runs from July 16th through August 24th.
Each weekday morning, a new project will be posted on Google+ by an expert camp counselor who will walk campers through the steps to build the project. And each afternoon, campers can join the camp counselor in a Google+ Hangout to talk about the project and look at photos and videos campers have submitted. Then, tune in every Friday, when we’ll be taking campers on epic “field trips” via a G+ Hangout.
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.
