The World Science Festival is underway in New York City, with 50 events over 5 days happening at multiple venues throughout the boroughs. A significant number of talks & presentations will be livestreamed online for free – you can find that full list of programming here by clicking the ‘watch online’ filter, or sort day-by-day if you’ll be in town and want to attend. Here’s a snapshot of what’s on course for today – this is just getting started, with the bulk of the programming being on Friday and the weekend. Parents may be inclined to attend the Street Science portion of the festival around Washington Square Park on Saturday from 10AM-6PM, with over 30 hands-on activities for kids of all ages.
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.
