ATMakers to Showcase High School Robotics Teams Assistive Technology Tuesday 7:30 EDT
This year, the kids who work with us at ATMakers and join us at ATIA’s Maker Day had their FIRST Robotics Challenge season cut short by COVID-19. In some cases, some were just 30 minutes from presenting their Chairman Award video when the decision was made to cancel the competition. Others were hosting the competition and had it cancelled the day before.
That sucks! But it leaves us with several awesome teams who did a ton of Assistive Technology work this year and have videos and presentations ready to show it off – let’s see them!
Join us for an hour (or so) as they share their accomplishments and give us a chance to thank them for all the work they’ve done in the ATMakers community!
Please help us thank the following teams (and perhaps more!)
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.
