Celebrating women in STEM fields is what we’re all about and there’s nothing that warms our hearts more than someone reaching out to us to let us know someone doing great work in her field. Today we are celebrating the amazing work of Dr. Jenna Carpenter, Dean of Engineering at Campbell University. A big thanks to Andrew Wakefield, who works at Campbell with Dr. Carpenter.
I greatly admire the way that Adafruit highlights female leaders and
pioneers in the technical fields. I wonder if you are open to “nominations”
for this recognition?
If so, I would like to nominate Dr. Jenna Carpenter, the founding Dean of
the School of Engineering at Campbell University (located near Raleigh, NC).
Dr. Carpenter led the development of the School of Engineering, with the
charter class graduating in 2020. She is a remarkable woman whom I believe
would be more than worthy of recognition.
Dr. Jenna P. Carpenter is Founding Dean and Professor of Engineering at Campbell University. With a hands-on, project-based approach all four years, Campbell School of Engineering focuses on design and utilizes unique classlabs to seamlessly integrate lecture and lab. The program also emphasizes teaming, communication skills, student internships, professional engineering licensure, professional development training and service learning. The School has earned a Bronze Award from the ASEE Diversity Recognition Program and is a KEEN Partner Institution.
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.
