New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) today announced a partnership that will lead to the creation of Harlem Biospace, a new life sciences incubator which will provide affordable wet-lab and microbench facilities, specialized laboratory equipment, mentorship and business support to early-stage life sciences companies. Designed to help create a thriving biotech community for turning revolutionary ideas into products that will solve important health problems, the initiative will provide up to 20 startup biotech companies with the tools and resources they need to grow in New York City. NYCEDC is launching this initiative in partnership with Sam Sia, PhD, an entrepreneur and faculty member at Columbia University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering and Founder of Harlem Biospace.
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.
