DALLAS & FORT WORTH, Texas -- February 14, 2013

Mouser Electronics, Inc., regarded as a top design engineering resource and
global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, today
announced that it will again be a major sponsor of National Engineers Week
2013, a five-day event at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
designed to emphasize just how much fun engineering can be.

Major events will be centered at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
February 19-23, but other activities are planned throughout the week at
schools across the Fort Worth/Dallas area. At the Museum, Mouser will host an
array of engineering challenges and activities in its own company-branded
Imaginer Studio, where Museum guests will participate in interactive
experiences while learning how engineering impacts everyday life. Mouser
Electronics hopes to spark the imagination of future design engineers, young
and old alike, and demonstrate some of the latest technologies impacting the
world of tomorrow. It’s all part of National Engineers Week, observed each
year throughout the United States to increase public awareness and
appreciation of engineers and their work.

“One of the great challenges facing our country, industry and company is
developing the future technical workforce,” said Larry Johannes, Mouser Vice
President of Brand Marketing. “We are excited by this opportunity to inspire
the next generation of engineers through events like Engineers Week that
promote and enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education
programs. We believe that these programs shape the innovators, inventors, and
scientists that will create the technological wonders that will wow us.”

“There’s no better feeling than having a solid company behind you – one that
shares a genuine excitement for advancing innovation,” said Van A. Romans,
President of the Museum of Science and History. “To remain at the forefront of
innovation, we need to inspire a new generation toward rewarding engineering
careers. Mouser is a valued sponsor and a true partner: With their increased
financial, in-kind, and volunteer support and professional insights this year,
we are offering thousands of unique, creative, and memorable
engineering-related learning experiences to our guests.”
