Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service: Coastal Cleanup in NYC #MLKDay @mlkday
If you’re free this morning from 10-1pm, this is a great opportunity to volunteer at Idlewild Park! From NYC Parks:
Volunteer with the Stewardship Team at Idlewild Park on Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Volunteers will help protect and maintain the wetlands of Idlewild Park by removing floatable debris. Volunteers will be trained in removal and cleanup techniques. Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, warm layers, long pants, and clothing that can get dirty. Space is limited and registration is required. Register online.
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.
