Last year Thales ran Project Arduino at universities in the UK and California and it was very popular with the students. Not only is it a fun competition, you will also receive some kit that you can use as part of your university projects whilst taking on other Universities to win the grand prize across the UK and also internationally.
The event is targeted towards Computer Science and Electronic/Electrical Engineering students of all year groups and will involve you attending a 3-4 hour workshop to learn how to use the Arduino. During the 2 weeks after the workshop, in groups you will then create a Thales inspired project and submit a video to enter the competition to win a prize. In case you haven’t heard of Arduino, here is some further information:
Arduino is a micro-controller which uses electronics and software components to create innovative and fun projects. Please see their website if you would like to know more about Arduino http://www.arduino.cc/ and you can find further information on our website and view last year’s winning entry from University of Exeter, UK here www.thalesarduino.com
This year Thales have Universities taking part from France, USA, UK, China, Hong Kong and Singapore, so this would provide some great exposure and experience.
