NASA Social is a program that offers NASA social media subscribers the opportunity to learn and share information about NASA missions, people, and programs. NASA Social is the next evolution of the agency’s social media efforts. Formerly called NASA Tweetup, our NASA social program includes both special in-person events and social media credentials for people who share the news in a meaningful way. This program has brought together thousands of people for unique experiences of exploration and discovery on social networks.
Your author, Adafruit engineer Anne Barela, has been chosen to participate in the NASA Social for the Artemis I mission of the Kennedy Space Center. Look for other Adafruit blog posts about this event and posts she posts on her Twitter @anne_engineer and on hashtag #NASASocial.
Stop the breadboard and soldering – start crafting right away! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clips, and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in minutes with the Drag-and-drop MakeCode programming sitelearn computer science using the CS Discoveries course on code.org, dive 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, a mini speaker, infrared reception and transmission, two buttons, a switch, 14 crocodile clips and numerous sensors: touch capacitive, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole world of electronics and coding awaits you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
