Thank you everyone for the links, tweets, +1s, likes and more. We worked really hard on this to have a lot of of amazing women on our site – we hope you enjoyed it and were inspired by them as much as we are (photo above, some of the women @ Adafruit..).
Next up, who else out that in our “maker space” posted about this all day event that’s planned and promoted every year as an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM)? Glad you asked!
And that’s it. Really, just 3 companies – Evil Mad Scientist, SparkFun and Adafruit.
We’re surprised not to see anything on the MAKE Magazine website, there was 1 tweet to a post from July 22nd, 2014, nothing on MAKE today. Hackaday, no posts or tweets about Ada Lovelace day at all? “We are what we celebrate”, we read MAKE and Hackaday every day, we hope next year there will be celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) on all of our favorite sites.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
