Young Maker Uses Data from the International Space Station to make Basslines #MusicMonday

via SYNTHOPIA

If anyone ever needs justification for a school STE(A)M program (integrating the arts with science, technology, engineering & mathematics), you could do a lot worse than the latest video from Caitlin, in which she demonstrates using data from the International Space Station to create a sick bassline with a modular synth.

The Code Club at the school that Caitlin attends has entered the Astro Pi competition, a program designed to raise awareness of space science with young people. The Club has assembled a Eurorack modular system in a hacked Ikea dresser,The Mad Music Machine, and is now using it to create sound waves – and basslines – from data.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
