Some new information has been added to the project page about an extra optional part of the competition:

The main competition day will be on Friday May 22nd, but there will also be a “sprint day” on Saturday May 23rd. It is not a requirement that participants stay the extra day for this event, but we encourage teams to do so. The point of the sprint session is basically to take a project, from initial conception to deliverable prototype in one day. The project will be an environmental monitoring system. The product must do all the monitoring (using Arduinos, RPis, etc.), communicate to an aggregation point (WiFi, XBee, etc.) and then display the data in a nice format on a web page.

The first order for parts was put through today, there will be another update when they arrive and we can start handing them out to teams.
