For several years, Mouser has been a major sponsor of this important event designed to increase public awareness and appreciation of engineers and their work.
Mouser will sponsor several exciting exhibits Feb. 23-27 at the museum, located in Fort Worth’s Cultural District. Other activities celebrating National EWeek are planned at schools across the Fort Worth/Dallas area.
At the museum, Mouser will host an array of engineering challenges and activities in its own company-branded Imaginer Studio, where museum guests will participate in interactive experiences while learning how engineering affects everyday life. Entry to Engineers Week is included with paid admission to the museum.
During EWeek, Mouser aspires to spark the imagination of future design engineers, young and old, and to demonstrate some of the latest technologies affecting the world of tomorrow. Mouser will also promote its new Empowering Innovation Together partnership with celebrity engineer Grant Imahara, of MythBusters fame. It’s all part of National EWeek, observed each year throughout the United States.
The experiences include the “Technology Take Apart,” which, just like it sounds, will allow visitors to take apart simple electronics to reveal interesting insides. Another highlight will be the “Engineer Meet and Greet,” featuring engineers from various fields who will answer attendees’ engineering questions.
“Fostering a new technical workforce is one of the great challenges facing the future of our country and our industry,” said Kevin Hess, Mouser Senior Vice President of Marketing. “We are excited by this opportunity to inspire the next generation of engineers through events like EWeek that promote and enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education programs. We believe programs such as this will shape the innovators, inventors, and scientists who will create the future technological wonders.”
“We are thankful for Mouser Electronics’ continued sponsorship of Engineers Week at the museum,” said Van A. Romans, President of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. “Mouser’s financial support helps bring this important national program to the children, teens, and families of North Texas. In addition, Mouser’s employee volunteers and donated electronic components add a unique and invaluable experience for our guests.”
