Phoenix Contact announces Nanoline Contest 2011
Phoenix Contact is a leading manufacturer of industrial electric and electronic technology. The contest challenges students in middle school, high school or technical school to build a working control system using the company’s Nanoline controller and nanoNavigator software.
“This contest is a great way to combine both the entertaining and the practical sides of science and engineering education,” said Jack Nehlig, president of Phoenix Contact USA. “Over the past few years, we’ve had a lot of fun with the students who have participated in the Nanoline Contest, and I can’t wait to see the creative ideas that the teams come up with this year.”
The winning team will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Germany in April 2011, where team members will present their innovative idea at Phoenix Contact’s TectoYou booth at the Hanover Fair. The Hanover Fair is the largest industrial trade fair in the world, and TectoYou is a special hall dedicated to promoting engineering careers to young people.
Phoenix Contact USA will hold an informational seminar for interested teachers at its headquarters in Middletown, Pa., at 11 a.m., on Saturday, Oct. 2. For teachers outside of the Harrisburg area, a live video feed is available.
