Explore the Relationship between #Music and Food in Black and Latinx Cultures with MOFAD and The Greene Space 9/30
Looks like we’ll be tuning in to two streams this coming Wednesday at 8. Ask an Engineer of course, and this exploration into food, music and culture, via The Green Space:
We will discuss the parallels in how artists’ communities and food cultures are targeted and exploited by outside forces. As culinary tastes spread, they connect disparate cultures – but exposure comes with risk. We will explore how the relationship between food and music in Black and Latinx culture grounds us, fuels us, and inspires us.

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.
