Update – Senior House @MIT #SaveSeniorHouse @MITstudents
Here’s an update to our previous post “Senior House Art @MIT #SaveSeniorHouse @MITstudents.” We asked if Chancellor Barnhart was up for an interview. We offered to send the questions over in advance and they could have been answered via email. We were told by current and former MIT students, the answer would likely be… no. Here is the reply we received:
Senior House has been shut down. Please help us by signing this and sharing it widely!

Senior House has been closed to undergraduates. All residents have been evicted, everything is gone and our murals (goo.gl/hvfcYr) will be painted over. It will reopen in the fall as graduate housing – goo.gl/sc84sN
“Defiance, the bold resistance to an opposing force or authority, has been a catalyst for positive change throughout human history. Thoughtful defiance in any institution—governments, courts, labs, universities, businesses, or places of worship—means taking ownership of action and putting oneself at risk to advance society.”

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
