  • Bioinformatics
  • 2D computer aided design
  • 3D drawing and parametric design
  • 3D printing • Laser cutting
  • Analog electronics
  • AVR microprocessor programming
  • Image processing
  • Mechanics
  • Open design licensing

Tools you will use to acquire these skills:

  • All the tools you will build yourself
  • Laser cutter (BMR)
  • 3D printer (various)
  • Arduino processing language
  • Inkscape 2D design
  • SketchUp and FreeCAD 3D modelling
  • OpenSCAD 3D modelling
  • PyMol protein rendering
  • Fritzing electronic circuit design

  • GitHub

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.
