With just $1000 of products from Farnell element14 in Europe, Newark element14 in North America or element14 in Asia Pacific, makers across the world were challenged by Premier Farnell, the development distributor, to “Change the World.” Last month, Premier Farnell announced 10 winners of their design competition, who will now have the opportunity to turn their ideas into real projects that can change the world.

The winning projects, from countries including Bolivia, Greece, India, Italy, Kenya, Poland and the United Kingdom, seek to solve specific global issues, such as a low-cost portable diagnostic center for rural villages, a precision apiculture system to help reverse the bee population decline and a 3D printed incubator to address the lack of medical technologies in less developed parts of the world.
