Win a 1 year Adabox subscription by entering the Boxed Raspberry Pi contest! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Boxed has a Raspberry Pi contest right now where you have a chance to win a 1 year Adabox subscription! Check out more details here.
It’s no secret, Boxed believes in education. Our CEO Chieh Huang pays for every Boxed employees’ kids’ college tuition, and now we’re excited to launch our Raspberry Pi contest in support of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Cute name, but what exactly are Raspberry Pis? Raspberry Pis are low-cost, high-performance computers, perfect for the newbie or experienced engineer. At Boxed, we’ve used Raspberry Pis to power our Project Smile technology (received a selfie of your order? Yep, that’s Project Smile!).
Now, we want to see what you can create with your Raspberry Pi. Simply share a photo or video of your Raspberry Pi project along with a 100-word or less description to Facebook or Instagram, making sure you tag @BoxedWholesale and #boxedraspberrypicontest. We’re looking for creativity, user experience, technical strength, design and application viability. One winner will score a 1-year Adabox Subscription Box (valued at $240) plus a $500 Boxed Gift Card!
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!

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.
