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:

Blogging Challenge
Successful applicants will be invited to blog in the STEM Academy area; the blogs should fully describe use of the products in the creation of their Teachers Pet projects. Blogs should incorporate videos and images whenever possible. Each RoadTester will be required to submit a minimum of 7 blogs; each blog should be tagged with “teachers_pet”. Final submissions are due on July 24, 2015; the Grand Prize will be awarded shortly thereafter.

Grand Prize
element14, Mathworks and Adafruit will provide the winner’s academic institution with a CEL Robox 3D printer.

Enroll in the RoadTest to submit your project idea and participate in the Teacher’s Pet Students’ Robotics Challenge!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
