#MyMiniRaceCar @digikey @teconnectivity 7pm ET Show and Tell! @adafruit #adafruit

Adafruit, Digi-Key and TE Connectivity has a special #MyMiniRaceCar edition of our weekly Show & Tell – Wednesday, July 12th at 7 PM EST!

Show off your #MyMiniRaceCar to TE’s Resident Engineer with Andretti Technologies, Judith Henzel! To join, leave a comment on the Show and Tell announcement on Adafruit’s G+ page, then you’ll be invited each week to share your project with Ladyada and the world.

Don’t forget to stick around for Ask An Engineer at 8 PM EST also with Judith.

Adafruit has teamed up with Digi-Key and TE Connectivity to bring you the MyMiniRaceCar Project Pack! We created this special kit to let folks all around the world experience the excitement of electric car racing. Pick one up here and use #MyMiniRaceCar to show us all the cool modifications that you make to your car on social media. Learn how to set it all up here.

As the lead partner of Andretti Technologies, TE Connectivity has a rotational engineer program that puts one of TE’s automotive engineers inside the Andretti Autosport shop in Indianapolis, Indiana (USA). The resident engineer is responsible for advanced engineering expertise—finding new ways to improve the Andretti Team’s performance and co-creating and testing new TE products in the harsh environment of race cars.

Judith Henzel is the fourth TE resident engineer to work alongside the Andretti Formula E Team. Prior to assuming the role, Judith was a Project Manager for TE’s automotive business where she oversaw global technical infotainment projects for OEMs, working primarily with cable assemblies and connectors. Judith graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden after an internship with Lufthansa Technique piqued her interest in airport operations and automotive engineering.

Attracted to motorsport since she was a child, which she attributes to watching Formula 1 with her father, Judith has been fascinated by the sport for years. During her time as a student, she combined her passion for the sport with her engineering studies when she joined her university’s Formula Student program. Judith assumed roles as a team member and team leader on both the technical and commercial sides, working on the powertrain and fuel consumption, while also managing team sponsors and marketing plans.

With this assignment Judith rejoins the world of motorsport to co-create new technologies and advance innovation with Andretti Technologies. Judith’s current projects with Andretti Technologies include aluminum wire harnesses and sensors.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
