Gemma M0 and NeoPixels help create the Fabric of Milieux Makerspace #MilieuxMake #Adafruit @houdaAjawhar @Concordia


Ann-Louise Davidson Ph.D. writes to Adafruit:

Might this be worth sharing on your blog? My student Houda Jawhar is creating a quilt to tell the story of our makerspace. So far, she is using Gemma M0 and NeoPixels from Adafruit.

Houda Jawhar’s mixed-media tapestry is telling the story of Milieux Makerspace. Jawhar, a former neonatal intensive care nurse, researches embedded wearable prototypes and interrogates what these new plastic composites mean for everyday life and how our skin interacts with them.

Here is a Q&A article on her work at Concordia.

On the fabric of #MilieuxMake:

The Fabric of #MilieuxMake was inspired by the work of Joyce Wieland, merging between her exploration of various materials in her artwork, and her attempt to reclaim needlework as an art that requires high levels of skills and inventiveness. This opposes the traditional devalued perception of quilting being “women’s domestic work” or craftwork.

Through this project, Houda is retelling the story of the Milieux makerspace in a quilt that represents a maker curriculum. Pieces within this quilt will combine various materials, including knitted yarn, 3D printed fabric, embedded electronics and sensors and microcontrollers, etc. Each piece aims to present a different approach to making, and the skills and knowledge articulated from it, thus contributing to the overall “fabric” of maker cultures as experienced at #MilieuxMake.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
