Scuba divers may flock to Florida’s coasts in search of vibrant marine life and coral-covered shipwrecks, but come June, they will also be able to view contemporary art as they explore the seabed. As Emily Petsko of Mental Floss reports, America’s first underwater “museum” is scheduled to launch this summer, bringing seven sculptures to a site off South Walton, Florida.
Aptly titled the Underwater Museum of Art (or UMA), the project will be located amidst an artificial reef 60 feet below the surface of the water. There is no entry fee, but visitors are responsible for bringing their own diving gear and arranging a boat ride out to the museum site.
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.
