To further spur innovation across the entire computing spectrum, Intel is providing 50,000 Intel Architecture (IA) Arduino boards featuring the new Intel® Quark technology to universities worldwide. The new microcontroller boards, in the Arduino form factor favored by the maker community, will enable university students to innovate at the lower end of the spectrum with inventions that will be compatible with other IA devices in the Internet of Things.
The program includes the following available to a university at no cost:
We plan to expand the program to a total of 1000 universities. The initial 17 universities selected to participate in the program have already received two pre-production boards and will be receiving their production boards within two months of announcement. We will consider additional universities for the program beginning in December when the board becomes commercially available.

"As a maker myself, I’m passionate about the exciting possibilities of technology and what can be created through self-made invention. We look forward to a productive collaboration with Arduino and to providing this community with some incredible Intel products that will help push the boundaries of all our imaginations."
