Makers, Inventors & Tinkerers - Get Your Project Entry In Now
IEEE Contest for Makers Looking for Contest Submissions by September 17
Makers, Inventors & Tinkerers get your idea shoes strapped on. The Institute of Electrical Electronic Engineers (IEEE) latest initiative to support the community-at-large of engineers and makers, opened the IEEE Maker Project in May and soon will close submissions on September 17. Since it is a voting contest, earlier the better but anything goes in social contest voting. The IEEE Maker Project welcomes innovators, makers and tech enthusiasts to battle it out for great prizes and the chance to work with an IEEE member. Last year, IEEE hosted the DIY Project which attracted over 300 student entries with winner Usman Maqsood and his team, Amir Salman and Reeba Raza, who won for their EcoSens, a Wireless Sensor and Actuation Network project.
"This contest is about the developer and tinkerer in all of us, ready to step on the world stage to show off their engineering talents and hands-on creativity," says Tom Coughlin, IEEE Senior Member. "This competition embodies the very spirit of making, and lays the foundation for the next generation of maker talent."
Prize winners at all levels will be chosen based on a content review process. A panel of judges selected by the Sponsor ('Judges') will review all entries. Entries will be ranked based on three (3) criteria:
