Washington Square Park – This Is What An Engineer Looks Like exhibit. On display AUG 12-17 from 10AM-7PM
We stopped by a STEM POP UP in the park and met Karina. Karina is the founder of Inertia and Head of Management and Impact for Makers for Change. If you are in the NYC area, check it out for the next couple days, all day 10am to 7pm in the park. It was great to see so many young people looking at themselves in front of the mirror as not only themselves, but also seeing they could be an engineer. Powerful way to convey it, good work Karina and team.
This Is What An Engineer Looks Like exhibit. A mirror display – “THIS IS WHAT AN ENGINEER LOOKS LIKE” ANYONE CAN BE AN ENGINEER! On display AUG 12-17 from 10AM-6PM.
Bridging STEM and creativity to further diversity. Through a combination of art and activism we organize aesthetic pop ups and experiences that inspire awareness for tech.
In the spirit of activism, our pop ups focus on bringing STEM to the public and, sometimes, in places you least expect it 😉
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

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.
