Destination: Mars at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex #Space
This exhibit looks all kinds of amazing. From Space.com:
NASA has announced that the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Visitor Complex in Florida will host a new exhibit called “Destination: Mars” that will let visitors walk around on the Martian surface without ever leaving Earth. For the “mixed-reality” experience, visitors will don the HoloLens headset that shows realistic, 3D views of the Red Planet’s surface. To make the experience more realistic, visitors will wear the goggles while walking around in a physical space, to further create the illusion they are on Mars.
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.
