element14, the community and electronics store, today announced “The Great Hackerspace Challenge,” a competition inviting 30 hackerspace teams to conceptualize and build a project to help advance technology in education. Hackerspaces are community-operated physical locations where people with common technology-related interests meet to share resources and knowledge.

Each team has $900 and two months to design, prototype and build a project that serves as a useful tool in a classroom setting. The only requirement in the build is that each team must utilize two special components – a microcontroller and a portable power source.
