Tested.com Celebrating #WeekOfMaking with Inspirational Maker Profiles & Stories | @NationOfMakers @testedcom

We’re several days into 2017’s National Week of Making and the folks over at Tested.com are sharing inspirational profiles and stories from their own staff. It’s a great premise and series and will give you a glimpse of a few of the more discreet or low-key names and voices from that team. I look forward to the other profile videos they’ll upload to their YouTube channel. More companies should support their employees with gestures like this and amplify their voices – after all every company is composed of people and their stories.

Adam kicks off a week of celebrating makers of all diciplines for the National Week of Making! Every day this week, we’ll be spotlighting a maker on our team and community, sharing why they make.

Kishore, Tested’s science correspondent, shares the story of the first thing he made in shop class, and the lessons he learned from that build.

Adam’s shop assistant, Mel, talks about how she was inspried by movies to be a computer engineer, her time working at maker spaces, and overcoming barriers to pursue her passions.


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.
