Competition Begins: April 2nd, 2018
Competition Ends: May 14th, 2018
Almost, a year to the date that Worldwide Arduino Day was last celebrated, Project14 will be having a Special Event to celebrate it's First Birthday!
At this time last year, all of our focus was on launching the new program and unfortunately Arduino Day came and went without any planned events on the community.
We promised ourselves things would be different next year.
When we decided to do a special event to celebrate the birthday of Project14, we decided the best way to celebrate this humble program was by celebrating someone else's birthday, the birth of Arduino.
This will be a special event that will be on top of the April Monthly competition you voted for in Project14 | Poll to Decide the April 18' Competition , Simple Music Maker.
Why are You Celebrating the Birthday of Project14 with Arduino Projects for Arduino Day?
The idea of having a special event around the birthday of Project14 was something we began thinking about seriously when we did the Holiday Special Event in December of last year.
How would a monthly electronics & design project competition celebrate its birthday?
Project14 has chosen to celebrate its birthday with a celebration of Arduino projects in order to show its gratitude and appreciation for the open source hardware and software platform that inspired:
- More collaboration and diversity of thought
- A culture of learning from one another
- Making knowledge available to anyone willing to learn.
You're a big reason why a program like this exists.
What’s the Theme for the Special Event?
It’s Open Arduino. It’s a reference to Open Source, the Open Nature of the competition, Opening Presents that contain Arduinos, and the Open Aproach of Project14 (community members decide competitions).
Members can use any Arduino compatible board or shield in their project and do it around whatever theme they want.
The Theme Doc will contain a list of suggested Arduino related Themes and ask members to post Arduino related themes.
Ideas that community members come up with and post in the comments of the theme doc can be used as ideas for future related Arduino Competitions.
When Will Winners Be Announced?
On May 25th, the date of the original Star Wars movie in 1977, the new Han Solo movie this year, and its also Geek Pride Day (The Inspiration for the Project14 Geeky Gadgets Theme).
