The Olympic Games will be held in London, England this summer and have the motto of Citius, Altius, Fortius or “Swifter, Higher, Stronger.” At Apogee, we strive to design sensors that perform well in rugged environments and would like to sponsor a friendly competition by surveying where individuals have used our sensors.
Prizes will be awarded for the following categories:
- highest (altitude)
- deepest (underwater)
- farthest north (latitude)
- farthest south (latitude)
The prize for each category is $100 towards equipment or services offered by Apogee Instruments and a write-up on our website highlighting the research being done.
To qualify, the Apogee Instruments sensor must be deployed in a natural environment (no artificial chambers) and record a measurement. To submit your information (or if you have any questions), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the value measured, latitude and longitude of the location, day and time the measurement was taken, any environmental data relevant to the contest, and, if possible, pictures of the sensor in action. We will accept submissions through the last day of the Olympics, 12 August 2012. If a winning entry is submitted after that date, we will highlight it on our website but no other prize will be given.
