600 Girls Showcase Engineering Projects at Cal Poly Pomona Femineer Summit #engineering #robotics #girlsthatcode
This Femineer Summit is the second of two summits this academic year. More than 1,200 femineers participated to demonstrate their projects this spring.
Projects included a knight and dragon; a “girl” with a beating heart that pulsed with light; miniature spinning tea cup rides; a Ferris wheel activated at a ticket booth; a small BB-8 droid; wearable technology in the form of light up designs on hats, ties, backpacks and t-shirts; and Raspberry Pi “cars” travelling a course with cameras.
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.
