My story about the Hacker Scouts in California, the web site diy.org and merit badges for young makers will air on “Spark” this weekend. Listen here. An NPR version is expected to air next weekend or soon thereafter on “Weekend Edition.
Becky and Ladyada with the Adafruit skill badges are on around the 34 minute mark!
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.
