Racing to the Future: Adafruit, TE, and Digi-Key Visit the Andretti Formula E Paddock @TEConnectivity @Digikey @Adafruit
Back in July, Adafruit’s lead engineer and founder Limor Fried got the chance to go into the Andretti Formula E Paddock with TE Connectivity’s Resident Engineer Judith Henzel and Digi-Key Engineer Trestiese Davis at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook. They got the chance to look at all the cool sensors, power, and more on the Andretti Formula E racecar from the inside out! Check out this fascinating conversation and read more about the Andretti Formula E team here.

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.
