Version 4


    Welcome to the 1 Meter of Pi Design Challenge!


    As your rocket ship blasts into space, speeding to Mars, you have 1m3 of space to grow your food and nutrients for the journey. Resources are limited, and you need to make it work!

    Luckily, your friends at the Community have provided 25 successful applicants with a Raspberry Pi 4 2GBRaspberry Pi 4 2GB, a Pimoroni PIM487 Automation HAT, PIM486 Enviro HAT, and a PICO HAT Hacker PCB to help them prepare their 1m3 builds. You have 10 weeks to save your crew.

    This could be the 1m3 of space on your rocket, or it could be used to feed the masses, or in an urban setting to help feed the needy during a global disaster.

    25 successful applicants will get the Challenge Kit free of charge to build and blog their project.
