Donation to University of Washington SAE Program
Electroimpact engineer Sean Foley hands a $10,000 contribution to ME Department chair Per Reinhall for the SAE Car project. Sean participated in the SAE car project in 2000/2001 and he has maintained close contact with the student group. Sean sees the SAE car project as the perfect environment for recruiting engineers to Electroimpact.
Washington State University EE 483 : Industrial Controls Laboratory
Electroimpact enthusiastically supports top quality engineering education. We recently had the opportunity to partner with Washington State University to give a few of their students a unique learning experience.
During Spring Break 2012, Electroimpact gave a 35-hour intensive introductory course on industrial control systems for WSU’s Department of Electrical Engineering. The students tuned and programmed a modern multi-axis servo-driven machine with digital and analog IO and pneumatic controls. The course engaged students with hands-on experience and practical examples widely relevant to factory automation in aerospace and other industries. Each day concluded with a factory tour where students were able to talk to experienced controls engineers and see the concepts presented in class expanded to real large-scale application.
Student feedback for this class has been overwhelming positive and Electroimpact looks forward to future collaboration with WSU and other great universities.
Electroimpact Sponsors FIRST Robotics Teams from Local Schools
Electroimpact helps to encourage today’s students to consider engineering and technical careers by mentoring FIRST Robotics teams. Mentor engineers from EI work with the students through the first part of the school year leading up to the national FIRST competition. Students are introduced to basics of engineering including math related to force, torque, motors, gearboxes, fasteners, pneumatic components, electrical systems, and programming.
During the 6 week build period, the students design and construct a robot with assistance from mentors. EI guides the brainstorming and prototype process but the students do most of the real work. EI donates time and some materials and tools for use in constructing the robot. We hope to inspire these students by helping them have a positive experience with technology and hands-on work. This year EI worked most closely with Kamiak HS Robotics team #372 and Sno-Isle Tech Skills Center team #3662
The United Way of Snohomish County's 2011 "Local Community Hero" award for a large company was given to Electroimpact for a 78 percent increase in participation and 45 percent increase in total contribution. Peter Zieve, company president, again matched both employee contributions and volunteering with a $40 donation. There to accept the award at the Community Caring event on March 8th, 2012 was Sam Smith, Electroimpact's campaign chairman and United Way Champion.

Electroimpact proudly received United Way of Snohomish County's 2010 "Best New Campaign" award on March 10th, 2011. This award was received by Peter Zieve, President of Electroimpact, at United Way's Community Caring Celebration, see the link to the Everett Herald article dated 21 March.

Sited at as a major reason for the award was the innovative fundraising campaign that had the company donate $35 for every employee that volunteered in the community. Peter Zieve also donated $35 dollars for every employee that pledged an amount to United Way during 2011. 51 pledges and our 25 volunteers resulted in a corporate "match" of $2,660. In all, Electroimpact and its employers raised $17,319 for the United Way of Snohomish County.
Sam Smith, a Project Engineer at Electroimpact Inc. in Mukilteo, was chairman of his company's effort. The aircraft assembly equipment manufacturer contributed to United Way years ago, but hadn't in years. "I am most proud of our 25 community volunteers, who take their time to make our local community a better place for everyone." With so many affected by the troubled economy, Smith said it was time to give. "I'm hoping to build on it," Smith said. "The company has its feet on the ground. We can look outward, rather than just provide jobs for people."
