Buy One Give One at Adafruit with Black Girls Code @BlackGirlsCode
For a limited time, whenever you buy a Circuit Playground Express at the regular price of $24.95, on this page, Adafruit will automatically donate one to Black Girls CODE! The goal of Black Girls CODE is to empower young women of color ages 7-17 to embrace the current tech marketplace as builders + creators.
Black Girls CODE vision is to increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.
