Department of Classics Professor Karen ní Mheallaigh moderated the dialogue, in which Riess and Motion detailed the intertwining notions of math and language and how they interact and fit with another in a society tending toward science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). As disparate as the fields may seem, Riess and Motion argued, in reality, they act in synchrony as a vehicle for both scientific communication and poetic interpretation.
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.
