June 19 is Juneteenth; a celebration of the emancipation of the last slaves in the US. This holiday deserves recognition.
As part of Adafruit’s continued actions to support Black lives Juneteenth is an official holiday for all Adafruit employees.
Along with a paid day off, the Adafruit Blog will be posting history, news, and support of Juneteenth.
Be sure to check back all during this week and Friday.
Please be aware that because it is a holiday your order may not ship immediately. For more on Adafruit’s open safe policy check here, and for an action list for Black Lives Matter check here!
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.
