On Saturday, November 8th, from 1:00 pm–4:00 pm, the MFA in Products of Design department will welcome prospective students to its 2014 Open House and Info Session. We’ve got a full program of presentations, panel discussions, and Q&As. Visitors will meet faculty and students, view projects and learn about the curriculum and daily life here at Products of Design. Tours of the department and the Visible Futures Lab next door will bookend the session, and unique refreshments will served to cap off the event.
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.
