Apollo 11. Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. 50th Anniversary. Adam Savage. Project Egress—need I say more!? Join us for this exciting journey we weren’t sure we could make! We were given an amazing opportunity to collaborate with other makers and Adam Savage’s team to make an Apollo 11 hatch door replica for the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Not only was this a great challenge for our team, it was a way to pay it forward and commemorate important aerospace history! Parts from various talented makers will be assembled by Adam and his team on July 18th, 2019 at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. If you’re interested in attending this FREE event, check out the link in the description below. We hope to 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.
