The podcast includes topics such as memory & cognition, information technology, medical inventions, as well as interviews with luminaries such as: Dr Helen Czerski & Clive Thompson, Fran Scott & Maia Weinstock, Hazel Gibson & Erik Klemetti, Abbie Hutty & Anne-Marie Imafidon, Roma Agrawal & Dr Peter Etchells, Prof Haley Gomez & Dr Karen Masters, Dr Julia Shaw & Dr Brenna Hassett, Dr Rae Robertson-Anderson & Dr Thorunn Helgason, Prof Elaine Chew & Dr Helen Scales, Elen Gwynne & Prof Jim Al-Khalili OBE, and many, many more.
October 10th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas” alongside historical women that have made impacts in science and math.
Please promote and share #ALD17 with your friends and family so we can promote and share with all of the world wide web!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
