The Cradle to Cradle Product Design Challenge incentivizes and inspires the design community to envision viable product design solutions for the circular economy, powered by Cradle to Cradle® design principles and certified materials. The final round in a series of six design challenges to run through early 2018, this challenge is presented by the Institute in partnership with Autodesk, with support from Arconic Foundation. To date, the Challenge series has received more than 466 entries from 406 designers in 30 countries.
“The Design Challenge is an engaging opportunity to reconsider the way we design and make products from a place of abundance, while eliminating the concept of waste,” said Lewis Perkins, president of the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. “The competition gives designers and students a chance to develop innovative solutions to challenges they see in the world. We are proud to educate, inspire, and empower the next generation to participate and activate these principles in their work.”
The Institute will award prizes across the following categories: Best Overall Project, Best Use of Cradle to Cradle Certified Materials, Best Use of Autodesk Fusion 360 software, and Best Use of Aluminum, and each prize will receive promotion through media channels and $2,000 US—and projects have the chance to win multiple categories for winnings of up to $8000.
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.
