Adafruit Donation Helps the Penguicon 2018 Charity Auction, Benefiting the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program

This year, Adafruit sponsored Penguicon 2018 by donating hardware for a workshop. They went one step further and helped in raising $2,124.67 to benefit DAPCEP by donating a Circuit Playground Express Advance Pack to the Penguicon 2018 charity auction. DAPCEP, Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program, is a non-profit that connects metropolitan-Detroit area youth with STEM opportunities by partnering with universities in the area. Penguicon is an annual Linux/Sci-Fi convention that is home to a wide variety of topics from technology to cos-play. For several years, they’ve raised money for different non-profit groups in the area, choosing a different group each year. The Circuit Playground Express Advance Pack sold along side many other items this year from convention sponsors and members of the maker community.


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.
