The Edison Lecture Series is a free, interactive STEM learning experience that engages middle and high school students with the fun side of electrical and computer engineering. Edison attendees learn the fundamentals of an engineering topic through a university-style lecture, then see these concepts come to life through hands-on demos. Be part of the excitement!

Edison Poster Contest
Every year, the Edison Lecture Series hosts a poster contest to design the poster for the following year's lecture. The winners will be announced at the Edison Lecture Series.
Please submit all work by emailing a link to a Dropbox or Google Drive folder to Andrew Carr, or your teacher can make a Dropbox link for your entire class's submissions. Please TITLE your file with your name and school.
- Keep the theme in mind. If the topic is "software", think about what images relate to software.
- Images of "gears" are representative of mechanical engineering, not electrical and computer engineering.
- Take a step back and look at your design. If you didn't know what the event was, would you be able to guess based on your design?
- Please TITLE your file with your name and school.
- Posters should be 11" x 17" (portrait or landscape) in a high-resolution PSD or PDF format.
- Artwork should be 300 dpi or higher.
- All text should be at least 1/2" away from the edge of the paper.
- Any questions regarding file types or requirements should be sent to Andrew Carr.
