Skolnik Technical Support of
"Engineers Week, February 14 - 20, 2010"
The annual National Engineers Week (EWeek) is dedicated to promote the importance of math, science and the various engineering disciplines to students and to help expand public recognition of the engineering profession, as well as to celebrate engineering accomplishments. This year’s EWeek was held during February 14 – 20, 2010.Having a desire to reach out to the youth of today to inspire them and to get them excited about math, science, engineering, innovation and technology and to instill in them a love of learning and increase their interest, as well as encourage their imagination and inquisitiveness, as an entrepreneur, educator, innovator and parent, our Professional Licensed Engineer, Jay Skolnik, PE, enthusiastically spoke to the UNM students in their ECE-101 class during E-Week about investing their education and considering careers in math, science, engineering and technology. Thank you very much for this wonderful opportunity! Jay extremely enjoyed meeting the students and had a terrific time motivating them about the engineering profession.

What do ESD & Mickey Mouse have in common?
An International Technical Forum on Electrical Overstress (EOS) and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), officially known as the EOS/ESD Symposium, was held during August 30 through September 4, 2009 at Disneyland Resort Hotel in Anaheim, California, USA.
During this fun, education-filled week, there was a multitude of informative training seminars, innovative exhibitors of ESD products & services, useful workshops and certification sessions, as well as enlightening technical papers presenting the latest research & technology, all focusing on the EOS/ESD solutions to increase understanding, to enhance quality & reliability and to control & reduce costs, as well as to improve productivity.
Skolnik Technical’s professional ESD auditing, consulting and training services were inquired and appear to have been very well-received by numerous participants from all over the world.
As Skolnik Technical’s commitment to quality continuous improvement in our products & services provided to our customers, our lead engineer, consultant, Jay Skolnik, PE, CPI, enthusiastically participated in many of the EOS & ESD training tutorials & workshops, continually improving his core competency, learning new skills and gaining valuable knowledge, to better serve our valued customers.
Again, we would like to thank you very much for having visited our booth at the 2009 EOS/ESD Symposium. We enjoyed meeting you and greatly appreciate your kind interests in our services & products and the opportunity to learn about your ESD control needs, as well as your electronics/electrical engineering requirements & specifications.

Skolnik Technical at FIRST LEGO League FLL
FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a fun and exciting international robotics program that ignites an enthusiasm in children for science & technology. It employs theme-based Challenges to engage children in research, problem solving and engineering. The foundation of FLL is to emphasize learning, community involvement, teamwork and friendly sportsmanship.
The annual FLL Challenge consists of 2 parts - the theme-based Challenge Project and the Robot Mission Performance Game. In teams of up to 10 children, they are mentored by at least 1 adult coach and have approximately 10 weeks to:
- Assemble an autonomous robot, using engineering concepts, that will complete pre-designed missions
- Analyze, research a real-world issue and invent an innovative solution for a given theme-based Challenge project
- Create a presentation about their solution to perform in front of a panel of judges
FLL events are much like sporting events! Referees monitor and score the robot game, whereas judges review the team presentations. Teams earn awards and trophies. It’s an exhilarating environment with much excitement, stimulation and tons of cheering!
The 2008 FLL Challenge is Climate Connections. This year’s program was held on November 8th at Johnson Gym of University of New Mexico (UNM) in Albuquerque, NM. As a member of the judge panel, Skolnik Technical Training Institute was delighted to be part of this fun, rewarding event, inspiring children to involve in science & technology, as well as offering them an enjoyable, creative, hands-on learning experience, while building their confidence and self-esteem.
Skolnik Technical's Visit at Eisenhower Middle School
(in Albuquerque, New Mexico USA)
Committed to increasing public awareness of engineers’ positive contributions to quality of life, we enthusiastically visit schools and community groups yearly to promote the value and importance of a technical education including math, science, and technology.
Our engineers recently spoke with the Math students at Eisenhower Middle School about Electrical Engineering, motivating them to pursue engineering careers to provide a diverse and dynamic engineering workforce, as well as encouraging recognition among students and educators.
We truly had a fantastic time sharing information about the engineering discipline with you, and we hope that you enjoyed the presentation as well. Thanks again so much for the opportunity to visit your school!

Many congratulations to Bill Miller (of University of New Mexico), who has won our beautiful, official Skolnik Technical shirt! Bill's name was drawn from all of the correct answers which we received for our Brainteaser.
For those of you who participated in our "Brainteaser" contest, the correct answer is:
"To remove one of the grounds from the shielded pair, as grounding a shield at both ends will create a ground loop, resulting in less accurate measurements."
