October 9th Is Ada Lovelace Day – Spread the Word! #ALD18 @findingada
The second Tuesday of October is Ada Lovelace. Here at Adafruit ALD has a special significance, each year we spend the day highlighting a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard.
Check back here on October 9 to get some inspirational stories of women in STEM and remember Ada Lovelace.
Finding Ada has some ways you can get involved and spread the word:
One of the most important things you can do to support Ada Lovelace Day is to help us spread the word. Here are some ideas to get you started:
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.
