This is a follow up to our post, when they arrested Ahmed, at school, he was wearing a NASA shirt. Change will happen, sometimes slow, but it happens, and this picture will be remembered. We try to get kids in to STEM, celebrate our achievements like NASA… then this. Any way, we are all Ahmed.
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.

The level of ignorance and the lack of even a rudimentary level of understanding about technology displayed by the school and the police is just heartbreaking to me. The comment, “it looks like a ‘movie’ bomb” says is all. That is, the only actual knowledge displayed was about fictional bombs, not anything real. To these people, anything with an LED display that shows numbers counting must be a bomb, especially if there are “wires” showing. Truly a sad comment on the state of our educational system.
