Join Make to talk about how to implement Making programs that support long-term projects based on real-world needs, and have a development trajectory in problem-solving and project management! Via National week of makers
Zoom and Meet have become the norm for classes and gatherings these days. Often, the limited functionality of conferencing software doesn’t go far enough to help you get your ideas across and hold the attention of your audience. Dedicated livestream software lets you build scenes, share media, and truly present creatively on platforms your audience already uses like YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Zoom, and anything else that let’s you plug in a virtual camera. In exploring the packages available and techniques used to lead sessions from classes to family gatherings, we’ll build an interactive quiz show, suitable for a small group of friends. Once you’ve mastered the concepts used to make a fast-paced quiz, you’ll understand how to apply all of this to future classes and presentations that you offer on your own YouTube channel or here through Maker Campus!
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.
