Got the head’s up on this neat upcoming opportunity from our friends at Georgetown’s Maker Hub:
If you are you a hacker, coder, maker, engineer, designer, entrepreneur, creative thinker or tinkerer, come celebrate Earth Day weekend 2017 by creating solutions to challenging conservation problems in front of a global audience! Multidisciplinary teams will compete in an on-site event called Make for the Planet over three days of the Smithsonian’s Earth Optimism Summit in Washington, D.C. (April 21-23, 2017). Equipment will be available to create prototypes and models of hardware and/or software solutions to specific conservation problems. Space and registration is limited! Visit the Make for the Planet website to apply for participation no later than March 1, 2017 (11:59 pm, EST).
