If you’ve ever felt the urge to build something, listen up. This weekend, a very special edition of Startup Weekend is hitting the Northwest. The Makerhaus is hosting a ‘Maker’ style event this coming weekend (June 28- 30).
What is a Maker event? Glad you asked! Maker events are focused on building physical products during the weekend…awesome right? And better yet, it’s made possible because by access to state-of-the-art tools and expertise provided by Makerhaus . The 10,000 square foot facility offers micro-controllers, laser cutting equipment, 3D printers, metal working areas, woodworking tools, and more, making the possibilities of what can be created during the weekend just about endless.
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.
