    Here's Ladyada and Mosfet at the Adafruit workshop. They work on making electronics for young people who might want to be designers, scientists and engineers! Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT engineer Limor "Ladyada" Fried. Her goal was to create the best place for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels.

    This is a pick-and-place machine. It uses cameras to pick up super-tiny parts to make the circuit boards you'd find in computers, cell phones, TVs and pretty much anything electronic!

    Congratulations on 1,000+ Supporters!

    First, this is an impressive sculpture of your workshop! The concept is a great way to commemorate the maker movement, celebrate women hackers and makers, and to highlight Limor Fried as a positive role model for young girls looking toward technology careers. A hackerspace playset could provide children an excellent introduction to the movement. We look forward to following your project's progress.

    Good luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!
