2016 Hackaday Prize

We are once again excited to be helping judge the Hackaday Prize.

Now in its third year, the Hackaday Prize challenges the international community of designers and makers to address issues facing humanity through technology.

This year the prize is divided into five separate 5-week design challenges. The first one, Design Your Concept is ending on April 25th. It will be followed by Anything Goes, Citizen Scientist, Automation, and finally Assistive technologies, which ends on October 3rd.

20 projects will be chosen from each of the 5 rounds, and awarded $1000 per project. At the end of all 5 rounds, 100 projects in total will advance to the finals where 5 top prizes will be awarded: $150k, $25k, $10k, $10k and $5k. In addition the 1st place project will win a residency in the Supplyframe Design lab to develop their project further.

You can see the entries so far on hackaday.io. You can also head to a hackaday meetup in your community. We’ll be at the San Jose meetup on April 23rd, and hope to see you there!

As seen in the JameCo Newsletter

We’ve been shopping at JameCo since long before we started Evil Mad Scientist, and were tickled when they started carrying our kits. This month, they featured us in their newsletter.

…all about taking creativity to the next level, bridging the gap between art and technology, supporting education, and inspiring new minds to transform themselves…
