Showcase your projects at Coolest Projects in California, this September #CoolestProjects @coolestprojects
On September 23rd, Coolest Projects will be hosting an event at the Discovery Cube Orange County in Santa Ana, California where young people who make with technology will be showcasing their work to people of all ages.
Coolest Projects is a world-leading showcase that empowers and inspires the next generation of digital creators, innovators, changemakers, and entrepreneurs. Coolest Projects takes place in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and North America. There are also regional events all around the world, led by amazing community partners and friends of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Coolest Projects is for young innovators who make stuff with technology. If you’re between 7 and 17 and making something cool with technology for fun, to solve a problem, or as a creative outlet, then we want you to come out and share your projects with us!
Adafruit is sending along some hardware in support of the event as we love to see more kids getting involved in making.
The more people who register, the better. So if you have a project you want to show off or there’s something you’ve been meaning to build and want to join up, register here!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
