Virtual Puzzle Decoding
A team of engineers have used their knowledge of mechanical, electrical, and software engineering to create challenging puzzles consisting of various degrees of circuitry and Arduino code. Your task is to decode as many puzzles as you can. Your effectiveness in decoding these puzzles (see the grading criteria) will be compared to the other participants for a chance to win prizes.
Unlike previous competitions, this year is completely virtual. Engineers rely everyday on digital engineering tools to design, simulate, and test their products. This saves time, resources, and money since online prototypes do not have material costs, can be made and edited more quickly and easily, and can be simulated at faster-than-real-time speeds. This competition uses a digital engineering tool called tinkercad to emulate this engineering environment!
