You probably know all about the Arduino open-source electronics prototyping platform already. Maybe you've used one before or perhaps you're just interested in getting your hands on one to see just how innovative you can be. Now's your chance!

Register for the Arduino Workshop and you could soon be exploring the powerful capabilities of Arduino, with a Thales expert on hand to show you the ropes, and the chance to win some great prizes including a fitbit altaHR and the opportunity to visit a Thales Research Centre in one of the participating regions.

This year, 9 countries are taking part in our global competition: the UK, USA, Netherlands, France, Portugal, Canada, Middle East, China (Mainland and Hong Kong) and Singapore.
