STEM MAKER'S KITS

What is a Maker's Kit?

Take your STEM learning to the next level with Picosolution's Maker's Kits - a comprehensive kit full of all the tools and materials you need to build a successful prototype in this competition. In previous years, our competition has had competitors choose between 3 disciplines of STEM - Alternative Energy, Biomedical, and Mechanical. This year, we will be offering all of the specialities in ONE KIT to make it possible to combine disciplines & innovate on the next level.

How do I order my (FREE) Maker's Kit?

Maker's Kits ($200 Value) are completely FREE to participants in the contest, up to 3 kits given per school (Schools with more than 3 teams will have to share materials). We encourage your team to wait until you receive your kit to buy any extra materials, since the kits come with everything you need to be successful. Teams are encouraged to build the prototype from recycled/repurposed materials.

Once your team submits your FULL registration form through our submission form, you will receive your kit to begin working on your project. Teams who register during early registration will receive their kits a month earlier, getting the chance to work on your project for longer.

What comes inside of my Maker's Kit?

 

The Maker's Kits will include a mix of alternative energy, biomedical, and mechanical supplies including:

  • Arduino UnoInland Uno: R3 is a fairly versatile board

  • Ultrasonic Distance Sensor: This is a very simple sensor that has many uses

  • Micro Servo: Servos very commonly used in robotics kits

  • Piezo Buzzer: Vibration or high sound good for electronic to body interaction

  • Battery Clip: To power the Arduino board

  • Velcro Strap: Multi use, Adher to body.
