Attention engineers!

On this Pi Day (3/14, get it?) we came across this contest that is for the engineers among us who are both well acquainted with and creative about printed circuit boards (PCBs) and have a burning desire to win a 3D printer. If you are over 18, have we have a contest for you: The MAKE Raspberry Pi Contest.

What is Raspberry Pi? MAKES’ site explains: “Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.”
