How Computers work – Code.org, @TeachCode @codeorg Bill Gates, Limor Fried … @BillGates @adafruit
How Computers Work, starring Bill Gates and other inspiring role models in tech (yay, Ladyada!). Thanks, Khan Academy and Alaska Airlines for your partnership to help students of all ages learn. Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities.
“We’re so so so excited to share six short videos that teach How Computers Work! Over a year in the making, these educational videos star Bill Gates along tech leaders such as Apple designer May Li Khoe, xBox architect Nat Brown, and Adafruit founder Limor Fried. Please watch these videos with a classroom, with your children, or with a tub of ice cream. 🙂
Because CS is for everybody, Khan Academy and Alaska Airlines will expand the audience for these videos. Khan Academy will include the videos in their CS offering, and Alaska Airlines will offer them for free on flights starting in April. (Both will also feature the How the Internet Works videos previously released by Code.org.)”
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
