On Saturday, New York’s Grand Central Station celebrated it’s 100th Anniversary. Grand Central has been a big part of life for many New Yorkers for years, and the Atlantic has a wonderful photo spread of some of the more memorable moments.
My favorite photo is probably the one above, bottom, of the crowd watching coverage of John Glenn’s historic Friendship 7 orbital flight in February of 1962 (51 years ago).
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.
