On Friday, July 19th, Ira will be chatting about DIY projects with Eric Wilhelm, from Instructables, and Mike Szczys, from Hackaday.
Think you’ve got a DIY creation worth sharing? Send Science Friday your most creative science-related inventions (if you’re in the Adafruit community send your Adafruit projects!!!). Here’s how: Write a brief description of your project and take a few photos. E-mail them your idea with “DIY” in the subject line. Submissions are due* by 5 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, July 24, 2013.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
