SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 2018 FROM 9AM-2PM
Every year since 1998, the Society of Women Engineers Wichita Section has put on an Engineering Expo to show kids in grades K-8 how cool engineering can be! This FREE event features hands-on activities for kids in grades K-8 to learn how engineering relates to the world around us.
Event Registration: There is no registration required and no cost involved. Expo is free for kids and parents!
Booths: Expo features fun hands-on activities showcasing different fields of engineering at various booths. You can stop in any time and try something, and go to whatever booths you’re interested in. Many booths have items that kids make and bring home with them. Parents should stay with children throughout the activities.
Workshops: We also have smaller, in-depth workshops during the event for kids in 6th-8th grade. These are completely free, but do require a ticket to attend as space is limited. Workshops this year include: Apollo 13 CO2 Filter, Build a Fidget Spinner, Hydraulic Claw, Solar Cars, Squishy Circuits. Find out more about the workshops here!
Returning Participants: There’s a little bit of everything at Expo! We feature new booths, and new ways of setting up existing booths too. So if you’ve been before, keep coming back! The purpose of expo is to teach kids about the different fields of engineering.
Activities to look forward to: We’ve developed a fantastic group of organizations from the community who bring their activities to Expo. We are excited to have over 50 different booths at the 2018 Expo.
Some activities you can expect to see at the 20th Anniversary Event are: Altitude UAS – Drones, STEM Education Mobile, Program Lego Robotics, Cosmosphere – Solar System Bracelets, Kansas Strong – Make & Take Your own Silly Putty, Wichita Chess Cooperative, Static Electricity – Van de graaff Generator, Blue Baboon Bookstore, NIAR – Virtual Reality & Reverse Engineering and MORE!
