In 2011, they rolled out the Great Create in partnership with WIRED, Make, Instructables.com, Popular Science and Popular Mechanics. Many of those magazines find their way to my house, so I'm familiar with the variety of projects Radio Shack has been offering for makers with a range of abilities.
I've been to a couple of stores near my house now to pick up LEDs, capacitors, and motors with special names that I cannot recall. I'm always pleasantly surprised that the employees, whom I expect to know more about cell phones plans than circuit diagrams, seem to find me what I need.
The Great Create is holding a contest. Are you ready to Hack Halloween?
See the Radio Shack site for full details on how to win the grand prize, a $250 RadioShack gift card. Here's the contest in a nutshell:
- Come up with a Halloween-related project keeping in mind that it will be judged on creativity, inventiveness and use of RadioShack parts.
- Take a video or some fab pics of your completed project and post them on the Great Create through October 31, 2012 at 5PM CT
- Be sure to comment here to make your entry official.
