Element14 Community wraps 2022 with holiday activities celebrating engineering and STEM communities

21 December 2022

Element14, an Avnet community, is celebrating its engineers and the winter holidays in the U.S. by combining giving back and ingenuity through three holiday-themed offerings including an Engineer/STEM Holiday Shopping Wishlist, an end-of-year Hack-a-Thon and a chance for local STEM groups to win electronic sets gifted by element14 Community members.

Engineer and STEM Wishlist: Shopping for an engineer is not a walk in the park. Element14 has made gifting easier by creating an Engineer and STEM Wishlist. Targeted lists across multiple interests including automation, robotics, Raspberry Pi, 3D printing and more provide great ideas for those looking for the perfect gift for the engineers in their life.

  • The competition is currently open and closes on January 11, 2023, with winners announced on January 18, 2023.
