Make One Switch and #BuyWomenOwned for National Women’s Small Business Month
Chances are if you’re reading this you’re already supporting a women owned business! So now the question is, what other women owned businesses can you support moving forward? Check out Women Owned or WE NYC if you a need little help getting started.
Here’s more info on the though behind #BuyWomenOwned from WBENC:
By asking people and families to replace, not add, at least one (and more if they can) of an everyday item that they use, through increased conscious consumerism this fall and holiday season, we can make a measurable impact on women-owned businesses.
The sky is the limit of what can be replaced to Make One Switch, and we’ll be sharing more about this initiative during the coming months and weeks.
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
