    In the Comments Below:  Let us know how you would Inspire People's Interest in Energy Efficiency or Resource Conservation!


    As many of you know,  Ben Heck,  whose been around for about as long as the community has been around, retired last month. element14 Presents will continue the tradition started with element14's The Ben Heck Show Friday releases with new Project Videos such as a Episode 349: Raspberry Pi Selfie Rocket by MAYER MAKES - Clem Mayer , Episode 356: Bank to the Future with Arduino & TI by Bald Engineer - James Lewis , Episode 352: Pripyat - DIY Geiger Counter by AirborneSurfer - Matt Eargle , Episode 353: Program Your Own FPGA Video Game by Andy West , and we've got more entertaining videos from project builders in the future.  The past year also saw the introduction of Wednesday releases with the  The Learning Circuit and sudo Sergeant where you can get your command line on with Felix, learn basics with makerkaren, and learn how to build more advanced STEM projects with daftmike .


    In the past,  we've given away builds from past episodes of the  element14's The Ben Heck Show .  We've got a closet full of old builds that Ben never got a chance to give away.    Rather than just let them sit there, we're going to honor the past, while welcoming the future, with the first giveaway for element14 Presents. It's a TI Plant Booster as seen on Episode 256: Ben Heck’s TI Launchpad Plant Booster Episode.  Many of you showed a lot of interest in energy efficiency and resource conversation, picking Solar Power Devices in  Project14 | You Decide the Next Monthly Project Competition! Low on Energy, projects that are energy efficient.  We're going to play on these themes, giving you a chance to win a light compensator that provides light for indoor plants when the Sun is not able to!
