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.
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.
