To organize an event during Arduino Day, go through the following steps:
Find a location and plan your activities according to the resources you have available.
Consider different ways of engaging your audience, such as talks, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, open days, and show-and-tell events. Most of the activities should be open to the public and free of charge (you can also run a workshop with a fee, but it should not be the only activity for the day).
Fill out the online form and submit your proposal.
The call for submissions will open on February 9th. You need to be logged in to submit your proposal.
Once your event has been approved, a location pin will be added to the map on the Arduino Day website.
This is just temporary though, you need to prepare an agenda of your event to get it confirmed. You will also receive a confirmation email with a link to download your Arduino Day Digital Kit (USA only) or Genuino Day Digital Kit (outside USA), which includes: posters, event flyer, signage system, graphics for badges, and a discount code for the Arduino and Genuino Stores.
Publish the agenda of the event on an online page.
Make sure the final agenda for the day is published online. You can create a blogpost, a Facebook event, a meetup, an Eventbrite page, or whatever online page you like. Only Community events with an online agenda will be confirmed.
Do you want to organize a local event on April 2nd 2016? Fill the form below by March 11th! Your submission will be evaluated and, if approved, you will be added to the official map of the event. All the infos entered in the form can be modified after the submission by logging in on day.arduino.cc
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, 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, 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.
