Best Hack at Maker Faire 2021 in Aarhus

October 16-17, some of talented students attended Maker Faire Aarhus at Dokk1. Besides showing and telling the many visitors what IT Product Development is all about, they also took home the award for B E ST  H A C K ​​for the rocket 'Lunar Shuttle'   🥇

'Lunar Shuttle' 🚀 is made by three students from IT Product Development. The rocket which was also demonstrated at Maker Faire is developed in during the course ‘Physical Computing’, where students learn to use and program microcontrollers, sensors and actuators (eg. a motor). The students were challenged to use what they have learned, in the course, to build a prototype of a game for children. CONGRATULATIONS to Dennis, Sigurd & William with the great award 👏😄
