As part of the Royal Photographic Society’s inaugural Science Photographer of the Year competition, a stunning showcase of images will go on display at the Science Museum this October, celebrating the wonders of the scientific world, with everything from space to the human body.
You’ll be able to see the world through a scientific lens in a playful yet illuminating study of everyday materials, from the structure of soap bubbles to the crystallisation of Aperol (of “spritz” fame) and even the unexpected formations of face cream.
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.
