AdaFruit, the woman-founded open hardware company, is partnering with the Ada Initiative to offer Ada Initiative donors a 10% discount on your entire order from AdaFruit.
Just a few of the many kits and badges you can get from AdaFruit:
If you’ve been wanting to get into open hardware, this is a great way to start. AdaFruit’s goal is to help people learn electronics and hardware, not just sell toys. With Limor “LadyAda” Fried at the helm, AdaFruit recognizes that women and girls love building DIY electronic projects and understanding how hardware works.
Donate at least $32 to the Ada Initiative in the next 24 hours (until October 2, 2012, 19:00 UTC/noon Pacific US time) and we’ll send you the discount code via email.
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.
