    2016-17 Arduino Design Competition Award

    The Arduino Design Competition challenges teams to design the most creative, innovative or unique device. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It is intended for anyone making interactive projects. Arduino senses the environment by receiving inputs from many sensors and affects its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. Users can tell an Arduino what to do by writing code in its programming language and by using the Arduino development environment. This award honors the top team/developers in the annual Johns Hopkins Arduino Design Competition.
