Engineering EXPO is a two day large scale STEM event that invites over 3,000 middle school students here on UW-Madison engineering campus to inspire the next generation of engineers with keynote speakers, engaging hands-on activities, and demos from 50+ engineering student organizations. Because EXPO falls on earth day, this year’s theme is all around environmental sustainability! Our event will take place Friday, April 21st 9 AM – 2 PM and Saturday, April 22nd 9 AM – 2 PM. 

Hundreds of volunteers will be needed for EXPO 2023 to run smoothly. All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and a free bagel! Shown below is this year’s volunteer shirt design.

Some of the volunteering tasks include: checking in schools, participating in and supervising activities for visitors, setting up and taking down student and industry exhibits, and checking in and distributing information to volunteers.

  • Volunteers should be comfortable talking to youth and adults.
  • Most volunteers will be inside, but please be prepared for the weather.

Volunteers are separate from student exhibits. If you are interested in being a student exhibitor at EXPO please visit our Speaker & Exhibits tab above.
