Sweetwater High School Girls Who Code Club Promo Video feat. Bartlebeats #MakerEducation
Educator extraordinaire Sara Kazemi teaches Computer Science at Sweetwater High in National City, CA and is starting a Girls Who Code club! She put together a promo video to promote the club to show in the school news and set it to the track “Daisy” from the Bartlebeats album Frequency.
Girls Who Code is a national program founded by Reshma Saujani. This video is to promote the chapter at Sweetwater High in National City, CA. More information about Girls Who Code clubs can be found at girlswhocode.com
Thanks to Tom “Bartlebeats” White for allowing us to use his track “Daisy” from the album Frequency.
FREQUENCY – Adafruit’s 1st Vinyl Record: A black box arrives in the mail. It’s a Cupcade, from Adafruit and you’ve been anxiously waiting for it. You rush to your workbench, switch on your soldering iron, and take out your kit. But there’s something missing.
It’s not a component. Or a tool. Or a broken link in one of our tutorials. There’s no soundtrack. (read more)

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. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
