Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.

I wish they weren’t looking to tie this to race, gender or income: EVERY kid deserves access to these programs. And if it is tied to classrooms, where does that leave homeschooled kids?
This looks like another case of a good idea meets pandering politician.
I know that on the surface this should be seen as a positive move in education especially by those of us involved in STEM professions. My contention is that the reason that education is in the state it is in is due to the fact that these “top down” programs completely leave the student out of the education process. We have the opportunity to completely re-design the institutions of education. I don’t see these programs doing this.
