Students and Makerspaces! Your odds of winning a 3D printer are excellent!
Win a Prusa i3 Mk3 plus the Multimaterial Upgrade from Hackaday by entering this contest by Feb 20th! We’ve seen quite a few entries from individuals, but not many from students or makerspaces, which means that your odds of winning are very, very, good. Enter now!
We’re looking for the best thing that you’ve made that repairs or makes something better. We love this entry that fixes the problem of a multimeter falling over, and we were completely impressed with Katie’s entry, which prints a 3D zipper for combining sleeping bags and maximum hug impact. Here’s the link again to enter. Good luck!

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.
