This year's National Manufacturing Week show attendees went "back to school" during the Gadget Freak Workshop at the Design News
booth. Those attendees who participated in a four-task challenge using relays and switches received a bobble-head doll of the G' Freak himself. Tools, wire, and test instruments came in handy for those up to the task. Participants could also vote for the Gadget Freak of the Year from those projects published in Design News, which came with a chance to win $500 just for entering.
