Adafruit offers fun and exciting “badges” of achievement for electronics, science, and engineering. We believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, and a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share.
Citizen Engineer 2009 was an online video series and comic book/zine about open source hardware, electronics, your right to hack, art and retro hacking by Ladyada and pt. The video and comic book debuted at “The Last HOPE” conference in New York City in 2009.
This is the “I’m a Citizen Engineer!” badge for use with educators, classrooms, workshops, Maker Faires, TechShops, Hackerspaces, Makerspaces and around the world to reward beginners on their skill building journey, because understanding cyber security is only going to become a more and more valuable skill. This beautiful badge is made in the USA.
The badge is skillfully designed and sturdily made to last a lifetime, the backing is iron-on, but the badge can also be sewn on.
