As the Academic Chair of Arts, Design & Science at the University of Arts London, Kessler recently launched Mi Pattern, a weeklong celebration and exploration into the diverse patterns that can only be found under a microscope, at the Lethaby Gallery in Central Saint Martins. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own samples to examine under the available microscope kits, including the Phenom scanning electron microscope that is capable of magnifying things up to 10,000x. Visitors can also scan their own skin with a Dino Lite microscope, and take close-up photos to post onto a “Skin Wall.”

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.
