Mouser Electronics, Inc, recently announced its second design challenge as part of its Mouser 500 Engineering Challenge Competition. “We’re looking for the industry’s top engineers to help Mouser and KV Racing Technology identify innovative solutions to some of its most intriguing race-related engineering challenges,” said Larry Johannes, vice president of strategic marketing, Mouser Electronics.
Over the course of the summer, the Mouser 500 Engineering Challenge will pose three unique challenges to participants in its search for the best solutions. Participants will be asked to develop an innovative solution to each challenge, describe it in paragraph form and submit it for consideration through the Mouser 500 Engineering Challenge website. Ten solutions deemed to be the best from each challenge will be reviewed by the Mouser/KV Racing Technology Team, and the finalist whose solution is judged to be the best in each challenge will win an Apple iPad 3. All three First Prize iPad winners will be entered to win the Grand Prize of an autographed Tony Kanaan racing helmet.
“The technology behind this sport is critical to the success of every race car driver and an aspect many fans do not often get to see,” said Johannes. “But we know there are many fans who understand and revel in the fact that there is much more that goes on behind the scenes and under the carbon fibre than what can be seen on the racetrack. We were amazed with the talent and creativity of the submissions seen in the first challenge and we welcome new approaches and even more imaginative themes as our fans find solutions to this challenge and our last challenge in August.”
