Astronomy Live: Multiwavelength Universe at the Hayden Planetarium
Registration for this event on May 29 2018 is currently open! From AMNH:
The universe is full of light, from the many hues of the visible spectrum to waves we can’t see like X-rays, gamma rays, and infrared light. Astronomers use telescopes to identify the many wavelengths space objects emit. What can these wavelengths tell us about celestial bodies and the universe at large? Join Brian Levine, Emily Rice, and Jana Grcevich and explore the universe through a different lens.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
