Fabulous sounding Hackathon at AMNH this February! Unfortunately registration is closed so we’ll all have to keep this in mind for next year!
Discover innovative solutions to challenges in scientific computing at our fourth annual hackathon “demo day.” See what a collaboration among technologists, hackers, and Museum scientists can produce in just 24 hours, and check out new digital applications that explore, transform, and visualize the Museum’s Oceanic collections and data.
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.
