Mothership HackerMoms http://mothership.hackermoms.org gives moms the time and space to explore DIY art/design, craft, tech, business and all manners of creative expression — with childcare on site. We are artists, makers, designers, writers, scientists, programers, educators, as well as mothers. Our non-profit hackerspace is located in Berkeley, CA. We are the first women’s hackerspace – ever… and we don’t want to be the last.
We made a funny, moving Kickstarter video about creativity and motherhood that people (not just moms) seem to really like. We have just 7 days left to reach our “stretch” goal to fund a DIY workshop, equipment and tools, a mini maker program and community outreach support. Our end date is right around the corner, Nov 18th.
We have big love for your site and your mission. I hope you will support us by sharing/tweeting/fb our story. Thank you!
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.
