Come work on your outfit for Burning Man or the next dance party at NYC Resistor! We’ll have soldering irons and other tools to use, plenty of sewing notions and also electronic notions like extra resistors, LEDs, battery cases, and random buttons and switches, plus we’ll have fancier things for sale like microcontrollers, NeoPixel items, EL Wire, fiber optic filament, conductive thread, and super-thin flexible wire. Come share your knowledge and learn something new — members will be around to give advice if you’re stuck.
We have a couple of sewing machines at the space, but if you have one you can bring please do so.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
