Burning Man Begins Sunday August 25 2019! Have Your Projects Ready! @burningman #BurningMan2019 #Metamorphoses
Can you hear the call of Black Rock City? This year the theme for Burning man is #Metamorphoses so make sure your projects and wearables reflect change and transformation. But most importantly make sure your projects are ready for the trip!
Burning Man runs from August 25th through September 2th 2019. Be sure your project is ready in time.
We have a handy list to help your planning go smooth!
Allow ample time to design, build, test and troubleshoot your project.
Don’t wait until the last possible day…there won’t be time for additional parts, etc (and popular items such as LEDs always sell out).
The are no returns of products used for your Burning Man project, once it’s been used, that’s it.
We do not have visitors or a retail store for purchases.
We cannot sponsor a camp or do special discounts, it’s not fair to everyone else and we do not want/need Adafruit’s logos on your camp (see the Ten Principles of Burning Man).
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
