A call for three young inventors (age 8-12) to be part of something not so little #littleBits
Check out this call for young inventors sent over by our friends at littleBits!
We’re looking for three inventors (aged 8-12) to be a part of something not so little!
littleBits will be filming a 3-episode web-series, filled with fun challenges and exploration. Each child will have the chance to invent, create and experiment with the new littleBits kits, BEFORE THEY ARE RELEASED.
littleBits is an open source library of electronic modules that snap together with magnets for prototyping, learning and fun. You can find more information about us on: www.littlebits.cc/about
The show will be hosted by none other than the founder of littleBits, Ayah Bdeir.
3 littleInventors, taking on 3 fun challenges, to make 3 awesome inventions.
The participants will be part of a trailblazing experience! And at the end of the experience, participants will get to take home a littleBits library valued at over $500!
If you and your child live in the tri-state area and would like to participate in the littleBits web-series (filming a few select days in August), send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.
