Today is Manufacturing Day, celebrated the 1st Friday of October. This past year we have probably all become more familiar with the complications of modern manufacturing and supply chain logistics. One big solution is to encourage more companies to produce things leading to less travel.
As an American manufacturer in the heart of New York City, Adafruit is proud to share our work. Most weeks we post #ManufacturingMonday and Made in NYC content.
To celebrate Manufacturing Day, all day today we will be sharing manufacturing stories to the Adafruit blog.
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.
