Today is International Women in Engineering Day #ShapeTheWorld @INWED1919 #INWED20
Every June 23 we highlight women in engineering who have made an impact. In hopes to share some inspiration and help get #INWED19 trending we will be flooding the Adafruit blog with #ShapeTheWorld posts!
We live in an incredible time where real change seems possible, let’s #ShapeTheWorld together!
Women (and men) all over the globe can help to raise the profile of women engineers and encourage more people to consider engineering as a profession for all. We are grateful to be working in partnership with the UK National Commission for UNESCO this year and thank them for their support.
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.
