Meet the #CatsOfEngineering – Conky

Whether learning to code, exploring the interior of cardboard boxes after being emptied of goodies, or just because, cats are as much a feature of our workbench and personal makerspace as the projects we build. What we call Cats of Engineering! We’re rebooting our gallery of images soon but in the meantime wanted to remind everyone to submit your own photos – images will be posted to the gallery and may be shared here on the blog as well.

Below is my 20-year-old friend Conky (RIP, she was named after the Pee-Wee’s Playhouse robot!) who actually rarely slept on my ThinkPad, so this is something of a rare shot. I do reckon this day was particularly chilly, and she knew she could warm up by napping on my PC, absorbing its excess heat 🙂

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.
