CircuitPython Day: dedicated to Lamba Labs and rebuilding Beirut #CircuitPythonDay @LambaLabs
On August 4th, 2020, Beirut, Lebanon experienced a massive explosion that left many dead and injured, as well as leaving thousands homeless. In the aftermath, Lamba Labs Makerspace stepped up and joined the many efforts to rebuild their community, including search and rescue, restoring damaged homes, and volunteering, including providing aid tents to help the community find food and shelter and joining construction engineers to help with the rebuilding process.
Last year, Lamba Labs Makerspace was a partner for CircuitPython Day.
This year, today, CircuitPython Day, is being dedicated to Lamba Labs Makerspace for all of the amazing work they’re doing in the Beirut community. If you would like to help with their efforts, consider donating to the following fundraisers:
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
