ALD Podcast: Episode 1, Dr Helen Czerski & Clive Thompson #ALD #AdaLovelaceDay
New podcast from the folks behind Ada Lovelace Day!
Welcome to the first ever episode of the brand spanking new Ada Lovelace Day podcast, highlighting the work of women in STEM. We’ll be talking to women from around the STEM world about their careers, as well as talking to women and men, about historic and modern women’s achievements, discoveries, and inventions.
In this episode
01:20: We talk to Dr Helen Czerski from University College London about her work as a bubble physicist, and about life on board a research ship.
24:55 We also hear from technology journalist Clive Thompson about Canadian metallurgist and research physicist Ursula Franklin, who’s perhaps most famous for her social and political critique of modern technology, which was published in print as The Real World of Technology. And Clive has written a lovely blogpost summarising the impact Franklin had on him and his career.
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.
