Hackaday Prize 2017

Round Three of the Hackaday Prize has begun!

Wheels, wings and walkers is all about open source projects that move. Make AI robotics, environmental drones, or automated devices that will help bring social change to the world we live in.

The 2017 Hackaday Prize consists of 5 challenges plus a Best Product challenge. This year, we’re giving away a ton of prizes. $1,000 will go to 120 of the best projects. That’s $120,000 before we even get to the finals. It’s so great that so many people get to share in the rewards!

What Is CoderDojo?

CoderDojo believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world, that it’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so! Any young person aged 7 – 17 can join and attend a Dojo for FREE!  At a Dojo they will learn skills such as building a website, creating an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
