The 2017 IEEE Maker Project is coming soon, and we’ll be on the lookout for makers and creators to share their unique technology projects for the chance to win a $500 prize. Have you engineered a project that can benefit society and help to educate others? We want to see it!

Your entry to the IEEE Maker Project page should include videos explaining how your electronic hardware, programming, arts and manufacturing projects work, as well as an explanation of the social good your project can achieve. Community members will be able to share, like and comment on your project. Project categories include:

Accessibility
Education
Entertainment
Health & Safety
Sustainability
Transportation

Get tinkering and follow IEEE on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram or check back on IEEE Transmitter for more information about how to enter the 2017 IEEE Maker Project.
