Wow! What a day! Our ladyada was at the Student Hackathon: Animal Rescue today in NYC part of the Computer Science For All, New York City Department of Education efforts! Congrats students the code and projects were great!
At CS4ALL hackathons, students from all over New York City are challenged work together to reimagine their communities and how technology gets used. Hackathons are ideal for honing new or familiar programming languages as students work in fresh and exciting environments, learning how to rapidly prototype ideas and create working demos, as well as develop and present their ideas to judges and other students. How can code help animals in need? Find out at the CS4ALL Hackathon on Thursday, November 3 at the Downtown Community Television Center! Coders + animal lovers of all levels are welcome!
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.
