February 20, 2013 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., regarded as a top design engineering resource and global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, is once again a major sponsor of National Engineers Week, an event under way at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History that demonstrates how much fun engineering can be.
Major events are occurring now through Saturday at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Other Engineers Week activities are also this week at schools across the Fort Worth/Dallas area.
At the Museum, Mouser is hosting an array of engineering challenges and activities in its own company-branded Imaginer Studio, where Museum visitors are sharing fun interactive experiences while learning how engineering affects everyday life. Mouser’s goal is to spark imaginations, particularly those of future design engineers, while demonstrating cutting edge technologies.
It’s all part of National Engineers Week, observed each year throughout the United States to increase public awareness and appreciation of engineers and their work.
“We are excited by this opportunity to inspire the next generation of engineers through events like Engineers Week that promote and enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education programs,” said Kevin Hess, Mouser Vice President of Technical Marketing. “One of the great challenges facing our country, industry and company is developing the future technical workforce. We believe it is programs like this that help shape the innovators, inventors, and scientists that will create the technological wonders that will wow us.”
“Mouser is a valued sponsor and a true partner,” said Van A. Romans, President of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. “There’s no better feeling than having a solid company behind you – one that shares a genuine excitement for advancing innovation. To remain at the forefront of innovation, we need to inspire a new generation toward rewarding engineering careers. With Mouser’s increased financial, in-kind, and volunteer support and professional insights this year, we are offering thousands of unique, creative, and memorable engineering-related learning experiences to our guests.”
All Engineers Week activities are included with paid admission to the Museum, located in Fort Worth’s Cultural District.
