We make crowd-sourced 3d printed sculptures out of hundreds – or in this case, thousands of parts, printed all over the world by people like you!
This year, for our fifth project, we’re going big - really big. To celebrate the contributions and diverse identities of women and non-binary makers, we’re scaling up a sculpture of Rosie the Riveter to monument-size and printing her in a spectrum of skintones. The sculpture will be over six feet tall and made up of 2,625 parts – and we need everyone in the maker community (regardless of your gender identity) to help us 3d print them!
***IMPORTANT: In order to have all the parts in time to build the sculpture, please ship no later than May 20th!***
Even if you don’t have a 3d printer, there are lots of ways to get involved.
This June, Adam’s going to the first ever Nation of Makers conference in Sante Fe! And while he’s there, he’ll be working on a unique build: a 6-foot tall statue of Rosie the Riveter, comprised of over 2,500 3D-printed parts. We need your help printing those parts! (video).
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.
