Arduino Day is the worldwide celebration of Arduino’s birthday. Last year we celebrated Arduino Day at Viluppuram. This year we are hosting the event at Puducherry. We are doing a hands-on session where people can participate as teams. This event will help you get started with Arduino and so you can start hacking with the hardware and play around.

You can participate as a Team from your institution or from different institution. You have to register your team here.

  • A team can have maximum of 4 members and minimum of 2 members.
