Women Who Built NYPL #WHM21 #WomensHistoryMonth #WomenInSTEM
The New York Public Library is a magical place. It’s one of those New York fixtures that you truly cannot imagine the city without. In honor of Women’s History Month, the NYPL is celebrating some of the women who are responsible for this mammoth institution’s beginnings.
In honor of Women’s History Month, the Library is taking a look back at some of the remarkable women who changed The New York Public Library—and the field of librarianship—forever. Each week this March, we will be sharing reflections from our current staff on how the impact of these trail-blazing figures from the Library’s 125-year history are still felt today.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
