The Most Important Woman in the History Of Mathematics #WomenInSTEM
The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics has started a group called the Emmy Noether Circle to help increase the number of women in physics and mathematical physics at Perimeter Institute. The video above tells the story of Emmy Noether, a woman whom Albert Einstein has called “the most important woman in the history of mathematics”.
Despite her brilliance, few have ever heard of Emmy Noether. Strange, since she gave us a deep and powerful theorem that physicists and mathematicians use every day. Learn more about the Emmy Noether Circle, Perimeter Institute’s new initiative to help women and girls in physics here.
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.
