ATMakers introduces Makers and Assistive Technology (AT) users and helps these two communities create the tools needed for collaboration.
AT users and those who support them desperately need engineers and technologists to help them achieve everyday tasks. High school STEAM and robotics students, hobbyists, and DIY electronics enthusiasts have the skills necessary to create innovative solutions today. These are serious white hats whom we’re proud to support.
Each badge purchase helps support ATMakers! Adafruit donates to the ATMakers foundation for each badge sold.
This is the “ATMakers” badge for use with educators, classrooms, workshops, Maker Faires, TechShops, Hackerspaces, Makerspaces and around the world to reward beginners on their skill building journey.
Adafruit offers fun and exciting “badges” of achievement for electronics, science, and engineering. We believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, and a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share.
The badge is skillfully designed and sturdily made to last a lifetime. The backing is iron-on, but the badge can also be sewn on.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
