This year’s Immigrant Heritage Month Hackathon is scheduled for June 29 – July 1 and will focus on the question “What tools can we create to improve communications between immigrants and advocates to provide more efficiency in rapid response scenarios?”.
This year we are back with the 3rd Immigrant Heritage Hackathon and we plan to make this an annual event. Immigration is a staple in American culture and will always be. We need to constantly be innovating to make sure immigrants are welcomed and have access to the resources they need to thrive.
Innovating Immigration one solution at a time.
On June 29th – July 1st , join us for 48 hours of hacking, learning, innovating and networking with peers and industry leaders who are shaking up the way we look at the immigrant experience. We’ve carefully crafted an experience that includes a game changing keynote speaker, a panel of experts in immigration, and a diverse group of hackers, students, and creatives who are prepared to come up with new strategies, insights and ideas on how to relate that New York is a City that #CelebrateImmigrants.
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.
