Interview with @MattStultz Moat Boat Paddle Battle #WMF15 #MakerFaire
We had a great time at Maker Faire 2015 and our most memorable coverage was at the Paddle Battle event. We caught up with Matt Stultz, the 3D Printing community organizer at Make and chatted about the story behind the Moat Boat Paddle Battle. This was our favorite events because it combines 3D printing, engineering and competition that encourages function over aesthetics.
Matt Stultz wrote an article on Make that details how the event took place and who was crowned the champion. Be sure to check that out on Makezine.com
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.
