Build something involving electronics that helps to chip away at the root of the problem.

    One exemplary build will earn a trip into space on a carrier of your choice, and claim The Hackaday Prize. One 'Best Product' will receive $100,000. Four top finalists will earn amazing rewards, and hundreds of other entries will be recognized with other prizes.

    Use your skills to make the world a better place.
