Phoenix Contact's fourth annual Nanoline Contest challenges students in middle school, high school and technical school to design an original control system using Phoenix Contact’s Nanoline controller. The winning team receives an all-expenses-paid trip to the Hanover Fair in Germany next spring. They will present their project in TectoYou, a special hall at the Hanover Fair dedicated to promoting science and technology careers to young people.

Phoenix Contact will hold an informational seminar for interested teachers at its U.S. headquarters in Middletown, Pa., at 11 a.m., on Saturday, Oct. 1. Teachers outside of Central Pennsylvania can attend via a live WebEx. Judging will take place in February. At least one representative of each participating team must present the project in person.

Nanoline is a controller that automates basic tasks. It is programmed with nanoNavigator software, so no previous programming experience is necessary. Phoenix Contact supplies the participating teams with the Nanoline controller, nanoNavigator software and technical support.
