Exhibit Topics:

Topics for exhibits can be anything related to science or engineering**. Some possible ideas could be:

  • School design project
  • On-campus research
  • Independent project
  • Open lab/office/work space for tours or demos
  • That really cool thing on the internet you always wanted to try building

The more variety we have for exhibits, the better the EXPO experience will be for everyone! This year's slogan is "Creativity in High Gear", so don't be afraid to get creative in exhibit ideas. **Keep in Mind: The primary audience at EXPO on Friday will be school children from grade school through middle school, so please plan your exhibit accordingly.

Information for Faculty

The whole college is going to be doing it...and you should too!!

This year, we want to make sure interested faculty are fully informed about ways they can get involved in Engineering EXPO and help represent the College of Engineering while inspiring the next generation of engineering students. 

Ways to get involved:

There are many ways you can get involved as a faculty member. Some examples include:

  • Create a poster or tabletop exhibit showcasing your research area
  • Open your lab for tours/open houses during EXPO
  • Encourage students working with you to create an exhibit
  • Put together a demonstration/informational talk
  • Volunteer as a judge
  • And more!
