Hack Club Edition of Show and Tell LIVE! 9/23/20 at 7pm ET @adafruit #showandtell #newyorkstrong #americaworkstogether PLEASE SHARE!

We have two editions of Show & Tell today!! This first one is a special Hack Club edition of Show & Tell (video) Followed by our regularly scheduled Show & Tell at 7:30pm ET.

Hack Club ran a Summer of Making theme this summer. To help students with hardware projects, $50K worth of hardware grants were distributed (funded by GitHub and support from Adafruit + Arduino with discounted products). The grants were distributed to 268 makers under 19, in 34 different countries and 143 different cities.

Tonight, we get to meet some of these makers and see their projects!
There is no better time to come together, we’ll see you there! The video on YouTube will be here, and stop by Discord to get the link to join LIVE!

The easy to remember URL for the latest one we’ll be doing is here: adafruit.com/showandtell


Adafruit has been doing a form of live video “show and tell” for about 10 years or so, every single week. We started with Google Hangouts, and after that was sunsetted by Google, we moved to StreamYard and it’s fantastic. The playlist is from our show and tell from last week. We have some of our team show what they’re up to and anyone around the world can join in and show and share their latest project. We’ve hired about a dozen people from meeting them via our show and tell, we’ve seen kids grow up before our eyes over a decade, we’ll made friends, a community together, we’ve had folks stream from hospital beds to makerspaces to girl scout troops.

Here’s the playlist on YouTube, there are about 400 videos … and check out StreamYard, we have nothing to do with them other than using their service. We stream the show and tell, each week to: YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Mixer, LinkeIn, and Periscope. The text chat is in our Discord with about 17,000 members: https://discord.gg/adafruit

If you have a company or community (or both!), try it out, and if you make “something”, anything, (everyone does!), stop by and join us any Tuesday at 7:30pm ET.



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. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
