Edison Lecture Series

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

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.

Deadline: Wednesday, February 14

Topic: Machine Learning

Submission Instructions:

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.

Design Suggestions

  • 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?

Technical Requirements:

  • 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.
