We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Samantha from Fabrication!

Unspecified 1

Samantha organizes soldering workshops for the team where employees can get up close and personal with adafruit kits while honing their soldering skills! Thanks Samantha!

Hi all! I am Samantha and I work in the Fabrications department (Fab for short). My responsibilities in Fab consists of soldering, test, prep and QA of our products. I also help with building and organization of our testers.

My other role in Adafruit is head of the Soldering Workshops that are hosted a couple of times a year. We build super cool things that are from our site such as MintyBoosts, TimeSquare watches and more recently, the PiGRRL’s. I’m also starting up a new program called AdaE.D.U which provides skill building for our members in Adafruit. We always believe in creating opportunities for everyone, which is why this is an awesome place to work. The environment makes you love coming to work each day.

When I’m not at Adafruit, my hobbies consists of video games, coding, reading and buying lots of Funko Pop dolls…seriously, I love those figures. 🙂


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
