The Digilent Design Contest Worldwide Finals 2014 are about to get started, and I am getting ready for the long haul flight to Shanghai!
Running on August 1st at the Digilent China Training Center in Shanghai, the Digilent Design Contest Worldwide Finals will take place! The Digilent Design Contest Worldwide Finals is a student engineering contest that is a showdown between projects that won top honors in the 2014 regional Digilent design contests. Winners of Digilent Design Contest EU, US, Japan and China are sponsored to explore the beautiful Shanghai and compete for the world championship. I was invited as an honorary judge to help decide on the best out of the best among sixteen teams.
After the contest, students will have a sponsored trip to Beijing, the political and cultural heart of China. Make sure to stay tuned to Digilent’s social media channels while I am out there for news updates!
