Open House NY is almost here! Thanks to Jay for bringing this to our attention. Jay writes:
Factory fans in New York City will be able to tour many buildings usually closed to the public as part of Open House New York Weekend. Some require reservations but at the low price of $5 a ticket you’ll have to get these quickly on September 25th at 11 am for the October 12th to 14th event.
– The New School’s Making Center
– New York University Tandon School of Engineering Makerspace
– Kepco, Inc. (a manufacturer of high tech DC power supplies including those that run the city’s fire department call boxes)

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.
