Are you a tech nerd? Is “early adopter” your middle name?
Do you dream of creating the latest and greatest in technology?
Come get a firsthand look at how awesome being an engineer can be.
Join us tomorrow, December 15, as MIT engineer, +Ladyada give’s us a tour of +Adafruit Industries, home to one of the largest collections of free electronics tutorials, open-source hardware and software in the world. Limor founded Adafruit to create the best place online for learning electronics, making the best designed products for makers of all ages/skill levels and to help educate and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
Bring your questions and curiosity to follow along with Limor and the other #deSTEMber participants at 10 AM PST / 12PM CST / 1 PM EST
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.
Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
