Monthly Pro­ject14 com­pe­ti­tion

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

A MONTHLY DE­SIGN com­pe­ti­tion open to en­trants of all skill lev­els, Pro­ject14 is aimed at help­ing par­tic­i­pants to show­case their tal­ents and learn from one an­other. Mem­bers of the el­e­ment14 Com­mu­nity vote in an open poll to se­lect a new theme each month, which en­trants can then in­ter­pret in any way they see fit.

Prizes for the Test In­stru­men­ta­tion De­sign Con­test in­clude an 18- piece Jour­ney­man tool set and a six- piece trim- out tool kit, both from Klein Tools. In ad­di­tion, en­trants who sub­mit an idea in­volv­ing the BBC mi­cro: bit will re­ceive a free de­vice from the el­e­ment14 Com­mu­nity to help them to de­velop their project.

Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Com­mu­nity and So­cial Me­dia for the el­e­ment14 Com­mu­nity and Premier Far­nell, said that el­e­ wel­comes mem­bers of all skill lev­els, from new starters to ex­pe­ri­enced en­gi­neers.

“Pro­ject14 is our way of en­cour­ag­ing th­ese mem­bers to share their skills and turn their ideas into real world projects. The theme of test in­stru­men­ta­tion in­cor­po­rates many of the core dis­ci­plines of en­gi­neer­ing, from work­ing with mi­cro­con­trollers and devel­op­ment boards to sol­der­ing and cus­tomi­sa­tion.”

To en­ter a Pro­ject14 Test In­stru­men­ta­tion De­sign Con­test, par­tic­i­pants sim­ply need to reg­is­ter an ac­count at the el­e­ment14 Com­mu­nity and sub­mit a blog en­try de­tail­ing their idea and how they plan to de­velop it.
