A show for engineers

What a great idea for a show. And what an interesting sponsor in Element 14. And what a great appearance at DESIGN West. And it all has a sturdy viewership. Terrific news all around.

Rob, I agree what a great show. I've shown Ben Heck videos to my ITT Tech Electrical Engineering Tech students to motivate and inspire them to create cool and awesome Capstone Projects. It's amazing how he's able to build these projects without having a engineering background. The desire to learn and try new things goes along way!

Hey, MrDon, if any of your students create projects that might fit into the Design News Gadget Freak section, please let me know. There's $500 in it for the student or team that submits a good gadget. You can send them along to:

rob.spiegel@ubm.com

If you want of list of the elements we need to present a Gadget Freak to our readers, send along your email address and I'll send the Gadget Freak instructions.

Rob,

What a great suggestion/offer for the students. Nice way to promote skills and receive a monetary payment as well. I have a couple of Gadget Freak projects I need to submit as well when my schedule settles down with writing 2 books, teaching 5 electrical engineering tech classes, and developing/teaching Raspberry Pi courses for MakerMedia via Udemy.

Thanks MrDon. We're very interested in seeing your Gadget Freak entries. Send along an email to me and I'll send the Gadget Freak instructions: rob.spiegel@ubm.com

Also, we often run gadgets developed by student teams. Any chance your students could contribute?

Rob,

I'll show the students some past Gadget Freak videos to pique their interest for submission. Again, a nice way to gain notoriety and a stipend for your project contribution to the magazine. Thanks!
