Maker[Space]Ship is San José Public Library’s #Makerspace on Wheels @sanjoselibrary
The San José Public Library have been conducting pop-up makerspace events for a while now – and beginning later this week residents of the Capital of Silicon Valley may see their Maker[Space]Ship driving around their fair city. Amazing – this mobile makerspace looks fantastic:

The San José Public Library’s Maker[Space]Ship is a custom built, state-of-the-art mobile makerspace. This one-of-a-kind lab will provide hands-on programming, which will empower people through making and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) learning.
Keep a close watch on this page as Library Mission Control updates the launch status of Maker[Space]Ship with more information in the months ahead.
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.
