The 2022 Hackaday Prize is LIVE 🤩 This year’s prize is focused on sustainability, resiliency and circularity with 5 different challenges:
Reuse, Recycle, Revamp
Hack it Back
Climate Resilient Communities
Save the World Wildcard
The Hackaday Prize represents a chance for the open source hardware community and the electronics industry to go beyond promises and work together to deliver tangible solutions. We are challenging our open source community of engineers, designers, scientists, and hackers to work within the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals structure, to tackle our planet’s most pressing issues.
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
