Maker Job: @PublicLab are Seeking a Environmental Kit Prototyping Intern in Providence, RI | #citizenscience
Application deadline is March 25th. Check out the complete job listing here.
We’re looking for a student with expertise in industrial design who can help to refine, simplify,
and document a Do-It-Yourself kit for sensor data collection and data sharing along the lines of
kits currently available at https://store.publiclab.org and inspired by the kinds of projects at
https://publiclab.org/methods – with an emphasis on the enclosure design, assembly
documentation and support materials. Users of these tools are primarily people who are
impacted by the effects of pollution in their environments, and the data collected may be used to
understand and communicate about these issues so that meaningful management, remediation
or advocacy can take place.
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.
