ASK AN ENGINEER is 5 years old. We’ve done our weekly engineering chat LIVE almost every Saturday night for the last 5 years and recently moved the show to Wednesday nights.
It all started with a free web camera we got a conference we plugged in to a shipping station and answered questions while Ladyada and pt did kitting and shipped orders from their apartment.
We’ve answered thousands of engineering and maker business questions, demoed projects, put LEDs on mosfet the cat and had guests from around the world from Arduino to SparkFun. 2 years ago we added a show-and-tell 30 minutes before the show with makers of all ages and skill levels sharing their projects. The most important part of any “show” is the community and audience, thank you everyone!
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.
