Nation of Makers is dedicated to helping makers by supporting maker organizations; through advocacy, sharing of resources, and building of community within the maker movement and beyond. This #GivingTuesday, consider helping to support our work towards supporting maker organizations throughout the United States through your generous donation. No amount is too small to make a difference.
Our work impacts the maker movement directly through our innovative partnerships and projects – from our annual Nation of Makers conference (NOMCON) – a national convening of maker community leaders, representing makerspaces, maker organizations, local and federal government, nonprofits, for-profits, and industry – to partnerships such as U.S. Dept of Energy American Made Solar Prize Challenge, to data gathering efforts within our community, such as our Annual Survey of Makerspaces, to advocacy, to our support those making a difference at the local level as they start new makerspaces and maker organizations, and so much more.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
