Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein is an theoretical physicist, author, and current assistant professor of Physics and Astronomy & Core Faculty in Women’s Studies at the University of New Hampshire.
My work lives at the intersection of particle physics and astrophysics, and while I am primarily a theoretical researcher, I maintain strong ties to astronomy. I am a topical convenor for Dark Matter: Cosmic Probes in the Snowmass 2021 process, and I am lead axion wrangler for the NASA STROBE-X Probe Concept Study. Using ideas from both physics and astronomy, I respond to deep questions about how everything in the universe got to be the way it is. I also do research on feminist science studies, and I believe we all have the right to know the universe. Learn more about my science.
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.
