Hackster, DFRobot, and Arduino teamed up to launch a new contest—Smart Campus 2023—in order to improve the learning and working environment for school affiliates to adapt and embrace digital transformation. The Smart Campus Challenge calls on school affiliates, including students, faculty, young makers, educators, and researchers, to develop innovative ideas that modernize everyday campus interactions, create a more sustainable campus lifestyle, or increase human well-being. Co-create your campus with DFRobot and Arduino on Hackster.

DFRobot, a leading robotics and open-source hardware provider. A company in an attempt to empower creation for future generations. It has played a significant role in the contest by providing its ESP32/ESP8266 boards, along with its gravity sensors and AI Camera Huskylens, to enable contestants to realize their visions. Participants are required to create their projects using any of these DFRobot boards and use Arduino Cloud to configure, program, and connect their devices.

US-based students or faculty members who participate in the contest also have the opportunity to win an exclusive, brand new Hackster EEDU Kit. To enter the hardware giveaway, participants need to submit an application on the "Apply for Hardware" tab on the contest page. Winners will be announced virtually on Arduino Day 2023, on March 25th. However, shipping is limited to US addresses only.

The Smart Campus Challenge is a great opportunity for students, faculty, young makers, educators, and researchers to showcase their skills and develop innovative solutions to improve campus life.This contest will undoubtedly encourage creativity and inspire participants to create forward-thinking ideas that will increase efficiency, sustainability, and connectivity across their campus.
