“Engineering Ella” – Thanks to @at_makers & Penn High School Students | #WeekOfMaking @NationOfMakers
Spinal muscular atrophy is a debilitating deficiency of SMN proteins. But thanks to assistance from AT Makers and Mishawaka, Indiana Penn High School students Ella is regaining control with the aid of assistive technology. Thanks to Bill for sending this in and to the students from Penn High School for showing how technology can be used for good.
ATMakers.org introduced Penn High School to Ella Hunt who needs their technology help. Their efforts are phenomenal and we’re so proud of them.
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.
