We’re starting the New Year with a brand new project — a new online community space where we can not just talk about the issue of gender in STEM, but also to share information about organisations working in this area, to volunteer to help such organisations, to plan Ada Lovelace Day events, to share job postings and careers information, and to shoot the breeze and relax with friends.
The forum is free to join and open to all, regardless of gender, field, background, location, or point of view. Because it’s a brand new community, it is a little quiet there at times, so please do start new threads and participate in existing conversations. We are especially keen to get men involved in the discussion, and encourage them to join up and join in!
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.
