“Mitch Altman Maker Hero” award is also being announced, to be presented to individuals in the “do it yourself” (DIY) and “do it with others” (DIWO) community who have made outstanding contributions to the cause of maker-related education and/or open access to technology. The first award will be presented to Mitch Altman himself for his tireless work in building collaborative “hackerspaces” around the world and in teaching people the joys of hobby electronics and collaborative technologies.
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.
