MEDFORD, OR. — (July 11, 2016) — Rogue Valley Microdevices, a full-service precision MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) foundry specializing in MEMS device manufacturing and wafer services, will award one LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Curriculum Solution to an attendee of SEMICON West (#SEMICONWest), held July 12-14 in San Francisco. In a twist on the typical tradeshow giveaway — which usually goes home in a suitcase – the winning attendee will select the educational institution that receives the LEGO MINDSTORMS solution.

“At Rogue Valley Microdevices we believe in inspiring positive change through education,” said Jessica Gomez, founder and CEO, Rogue Valley Microdevices. “And who better to inspire the next generation of youth interested in STEM than the attendees of SEMICON West, many of whom developed their passion for science, technology, engineering and math because of the educators in their lives. That’s why we wanted to offer a ‘Pay-It-Forward’-style award at this year’s SEMICON West. We are hoping that the students who experience robotics through our LEGO MINDSTORMS solution giveaway will be among the next remarkable engineering professionals who create positive change.”

The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Curriculum Solution, valued at $2,419.95, is the complete bundle for teaching computer science and STEM subjects using robotics in the classroom. From LEGO bricks and elements to lesson plans, engineering software and assessment tools, the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Curriculum Solution contains everything an educator needs in one convenient teaching solution.
