This year's theme is:
Engineering Hollywood: Scripting our Future
The most effective engineers can face technical challenges in a creative and groundbreaking way, similar to how the big names in Hollywood can bring their projects to life. By utilizing both sides of our brain, more is possible than ever before!
Engineering Expo is an annual student-organized event held since 1911 to create excitement and interest in the fields of math, science, and engineering. During the three-day event, over 3000 K-12 students, community members, and college students will participate in design competitions, hear from an industry professional about engineering in the real world, and dive into interactive demonstrations. Each day of Engineering Expo is unique and focuses on a different audience.
Thursday/Friday (February 19-20, 2015):
The Thursday and Friday of Engineering Expo focuses on our K-12 student visitors as well as community members at large. Schools from across the state and from neighboring areas are invited to attend. Beginning the day is an opening session at the Lied Center in which a distinguished keynote speaker will address the importance of Engineering in society. Following the opening session, students will have the opportunity to get out of the classroom and put their math, science, and engineering skills to the test in 11 design competitions catering to all ages. Beyond design competitions, students can view displays and demonstrations of over 25 organizations from all the various disciplines in the School of Engineering, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics Departments. Ending the day will be an awards ceremony in which the winners of the various competitions will be announced. Throughout the day, community members are invited to come and experience the open-house at Engineering Expo.
