With low-cost advanced technologies available for us today, there has never been a better time to show support for environmental protection.
Intel and Hackster have joined hands to lead this important challenge on Earth Day 2017, with an aim to encourage people to invent things that will benefit the planet, with a focus on all university students worldwide! And we’re giving away 11 awesome Intel-powered prizes for the top submissions.
