BioRender – make scientific diagrams much easier than using PowerPoint
From the “I wish I had thought of that” pile:
If you are like me (30 years in the government), you know you live or die by your presentations. And the tools you are given: Microsoft Office.
You struggle to draw, copy, paste, edit complex scientific work with tools used to put people to sleep. It does not work well.
It turns out a company called BioRender has developed a solution. Their namesake product has drag and drop shapes from science (30 fields) which allows the user to quickly and accurately construct science-centered diagrams in a small fraction of the time PowerPoint would require.
There is a free tier for educational use and trials for more professional use.
Why spend time wrangling the drawing when you are trying to create the innovative slides? It just makes sense. Read 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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
