DALLAS & FORT WORTH, Texas--()--Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader that empowers innovation, is proud to once again be a major sponsor of Engineers Week (EWeek), five days of fun and engaging activities at the Fort Worth (Texas) Museum of Science and History. For several years, Mouser has been a major sponsor of this important event designed to increase public awareness and appreciation of engineers and their work. Mouser will sponsor several exciting exhibits Feb. 21–25 at the museum, located in Fort Worth's Cultural District. Entry to EWeek is included with paid admission to the museum. Other activities celebrating National EWeek are planned at schools across the Fort Worth/Dallas area.

To celebrate this year’s EWeek theme, Engineers Dream Big, Mouser will host several engineering challenges and activities in the museum’s Imaginer Studio, where guests can participate in interactive experiences while learning how engineering affects everyday life. Experiences include “Lights Out” — a beanbag toss game that features motion sensors and LEDs — and an interactive LED puzzle game that features 900 addressable LEDs.

During EWeek, Mouser aspires to spark the imagination of future design engineers, young and old, and to demonstrate some of the latest technologies affecting the world of tomorrow. Mouser will also promote its Empowering Innovation Together partnership with celebrity engineer Grant Imahara, of MythBusters fame. It's all part of National EWeek, observed each year throughout the United States.

“Mouser proudly encourages curiosity and education in young people,” said Kevin Hess, Mouser Senior Vice President of Marketing. “Through events like EWeek that promote and enhance STEM education programs, we hope to help shape the innovators, inventors, and scientists who will create the future technological wonders.”

“Dream Big as a theme for Engineer’s Week really speaks to the full potential of the profession,” said Van A. Romans, President of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. “Through financial support and donated components, Mouser and its employee volunteers show that they truly support the engineering community.”
