Ocean Exploration: Watch Livestreams from the Okeanos Explorer in the Marianas Trench @NOAA

Okeanos Explorer is currently exploring “deepwater environments in and around the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands,” including the Marianas Trench, and they have some amazingly sharp cameras on-board. For example the creature seen zoomed in here:

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.
