Arduino Wants to Share Your Projects on Arduino EDUVision
Do you have an Arduino project that you feel deserves to be in the spotlight? Here’s your chance to shine with Arduino EDUVision!
What do you need to succeed and be featured on EDUVision? Innovation and creativity. These are the two most-wanted characteristics in a project the Arduino team will be looking for. If your project is judged to have what it takes, it could be featured live!
The Arduino team will feature one project each week for the 10-week Season 3 of of EDUVision. Each episode will include product tips, live demos, news, how-to instructional information, and inspirational interviews with students and educators.
What’s in It for You?
In addition to the recognition and that incredible moment under the spotlight, you also get some of the coolest Arduino merch. You can get a premium stylized stationery set, stickers, lanyards, beanies and hats, a slick labeled notebook, or water bottles.
Of course, the Arduino gear is only a bonus. The best part will be that you get to showcase your project. You get to show the world your unique work and how it can make the world a better place.
How You Can Share Your Work
If you’re interested in sharing your project, here’s what you need to do:
1. Record a 1-minute video.
There is a bit of camera work needed, but don’t worry. You don’t need to be a pro behind the lens. All you need to do is to shoot a one-minute video about your project.
In that video, you need to explain what your project is all about. You need to demonstrate how it works and what it can do. In short—it’s your time to shine. Make sure to get a good camera angle and use sufficient lighting.
And don’t forget that you are required to shoot your video in landscape format. You can use your phone to shoot your video—no problem with that. Just remember to shoot it horizontally.
You can send your video in either .mov or .mp4 format. And don’t think you need to shoot your video in 4K resolution. Remember that your video file needs to be less than 10mb in size.
Will you need to do some editing? Big hint: yes, please!
The good news is, you don’t need to add some fancy overlays. But you should at least add a voiceover so that the audience can get a walk-through of your project and know what’s going on.
Here’s another tip: you should do something to reduce any background noise. That’s one common mistake amateur videographers make all the time. By ensuring a quiet location and avoiding background noise, you will stand out in a positive way.
Be sure to choose a good time to make your one-minute video, maybe in the early morning or at night. Pick a time when there isn’t a lot of traffic. You can also choose to record within the confines of your room and ask everyone in the house to keep it down for just one minute.
You can also use noise-cancelling apps like Krisp, Noise Killer, and others. You can then add voiceovers to your video after recording it.
2. Make sure you’re a registered Arduino user.
After editing your video with all the audio and lighting fixed, it’s time to upload it. You won’t be able to upload your work if you’re not a registered Arduino user. So, if you haven’t yet, be sure to register.
Don’t worry, you won’t be charged anything since signing up is absolutely free. If you already have an account, just sign in. You’ll also need to agree to the terms and conditions.
3. Make sure you have all the boxes ticked.
Here’s a short checklist to help you. Make sure you have all the boxes ticked:
Become a registered user (see link above).
- Reduce background noise as much as humanly possible.
- Ensure good lighting.
- File size less than 10mb
- Remember to do a voiceover to explain your project.
- Shoot the video in landscape format.
- Write a short description and a name for your project.
- Submit your video and description here.
