Register to join the first New York Maker summit now! #nysmakers
The first New York Maker summit will be happening on March 24th in Albany – check out the event website if you are interested in registering! They are also currently looking for speakers so if you are a maker, educator, political, manufacturer, maker space, etc please apply here.
The goal of the New York State Maker Summit is to bring makers, makerspaces, maker events, educators, politicians, manufacturers, industry leaders, museums, libraries, and anyone who is passionate about the Maker Movement together to learn about each other, talk about partnerships & the problems that we all run into, and discuss how to grow the movement within the state.
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.

I wish My Makers and I could attend the summit, but that’s a bit of a journey for us on a school day. We hope that the event is a big success, and that you are able to either livestream it or post the speaker’s videos on YouTube. Power to the Makers!
