Bare Conductive Paint is a multipurpose electrically conductive material perfect for all of your DIY projects! Bare Paint is water based, nontoxic and dries at room temperature.
Bare Paint is the first non-toxic electrically conductive paint available to consumers today. This unique child-friendly material is designed for people of all ages to explore and learn about electronics with an inclusive, easy-to-use material.
Bare Paint provides a dramatically different method of interacting with electronics as it can be applied to almost any surface, including cardboard, paper, wood, wallpaper, walls, textiles, and some plastics.
Bare paint can be used to replace conventional acid etching, making it a great electronics prototyping tool. Nontoxic and water-soluble, Bare Paint can be used without gloves or mask. The paint dries quickly at room temperature, and can be removed with soap and water. This means it’s also not water-proof or weather-resistant!
Application Methods Include: painting, screen printing & spray painting among others. Despite being called “Bare” conductive, it’s meant not for use on bare skin.

Rails Girls Summer of Code helps Rails Girls students get into Open Source. Just like in Google Summer of Code and Ruby Summer of Code, students will be paid so they’re free to work on Open Source projects for a few months. Unlike those programs, the Rails Girls Summer of Code is about helping students to further expand their knowledge and skills by contributing to a great Open Source project (rather than producing highly sophisticated code).
A is for Array is the book for programmers and their successors. Created by a father for his three young children, this beautifully illustrated book will captivate your children and open their eyes to the incredible world of programming.
I love to code. I have 3 awesome (young) kids. Before my first one was born, I thought to myself, “I need to figure out a way to use her language to illuminate mine.”A is for Array was born that day. It has been a few years since then.
My kids often come in to my office and each time are greeted with a few pieces of candy and/or snacks. When my oldest daughter was asked what it is that I do, she responded with, “He goes to work and eats candy and plays on his computer.” The dream was reawakened.
I am sure that many of you guys (and gals) share similar experiences, hearing whispers of “code monkey” and the like from friends, family, and curious coworkers. Well, A is for Array is here to save the day.
Full of beautiful illustrations illuminating the concepts that programmers work with daily, the book aims to give your loved ones an insight into your world.
Share this book with your little programmers-to-be.

cratch – Skill badge, iron-on patch – You are learning Scratch! Adafruit offers a fun and exciting “badges” of achievement for electronics, science and engineering. We believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share.
Coding for kids: an iPad programming language. Hopscotch allows you to create an interactive program on the iPad by dragging blocks of code and dropping them into a scripting area. No typing required. For this first release we focused our efforts on creating an intuitive and beautiful programming experience.
We’re not aware of any other products quite like ours. No other programming language has been designed to be used on a mobile interface. So I think we can safely say that, in addition to making a beautiful and “addictive” product, we’ve also built the first language made specifically to be programmed on a mobile device. That’s something that we’re really proud of.
