element14, in collaboration with Mathworks and Adafruit, are proud to announce the Teacher’s Pet Students’ Robotics Challenge. Selected competitors will be provided with an extensive Raspberry Pi 2 OR Arduino kit. Each contestant will also get free access to MathWorks tools including MATLAB, Simulink and relevant toolboxes for programming various components in the hardware kit. Potential applications can range from programmable robots which serve as mobile alarm clocks, to ones which carry their books for them, to interactive, moving calendars which help students stay on top of their schedules.

Each selected competitor who chooses the Arduino Kit will receive the following package of items:
