Read #Dune with the SciFri Book Club

sandworm

For the past six or so months at Adafruit, we’ve been talking about Dune. Frank Herbert’s science fiction classic has inspired makers of props and costumes, and we’ve been rounding those up. If you’ve been following along and love the book, you can join in the SciFri Book Club’s reading of Dune:

After a hiatus, the SciFri Book Club is back! The concept is simple: Read a great science or sci-fi book, and discuss it with authors, scientists, and your fellow SciFri listeners on-air and online. This summer, we’re reading Frank Herbert’s ecological epic Dune. Join sci-fi author Kim Stanley Robinson and astrobiologist and theoretical physicist Sara Imari Walker as they help kick off the club with an introduction to Herbert’s “Duniverse.”

Follow along with all their Dune posts here.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
