#WeTheRosies Success at 2018’s NOMCON | #NationOfMakers #WeekofMaking @NationOfMakers
We The Builders set out to build a 6-foot-tall Rosie the Riveter from 2,625 individual parts of 3D-printed blocks – the project was assembled at the Nation of Makers’ conference NOMCON earlier this month. The build was a success, and the sculpture looks fantastic!
The exciting culmination of this project will take place during NOMCON, a convening of maker, hacker, technology, and crafts leaders hosted by Nation of Makers happening in Santa Fe, NM this June. Stay tuned for live coverage from the event, as well as a video documenting the build process with some special guests!
We the Builders brings together 3D printer operators from all over the world to create sculptures that inspire makers. Our sculptures have toured maker-related events of all sizes around the northeastern United States, from local STEAM education events all the way to the White House. The group was founded during a hackathon in 2014 by Todd Blatt and Marty McGuire.
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.
