Held at MIT on June 13-15, 2014, to bring together stakeholders in the community for training, discussion, and finding consensus on solutions to gender inequality and sexual harassment. Generously funded by an IDEA grant from the National Association of Science Writers.
The conference includes a Friday evening reception followed by a day of sessions for training and discussion. Sunday morning will involve a workshop for interested conference attendees to aid in drafting a working solutions document for dissemination to the community. The emphasis of the conference in terms of panelists and attendees is on diversity, not just gender diversity but also ethnic diversity.

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.
