Business Be A Supporter of Engineering Expo
The overriding effort of this event, is to provide a forum where students can meet with engineering colleges and engineering businesses, to get a real understanding of what engineers do, and to also learn what universities might be of interest to them. We find that college outreach is most effective when we have representatives of both the Admissions office and one or more professors (or grad students) who can speak about the work that they're doing, in their specific engineering field.
Engineering Expo is a very enjoyable and interactive event, where displays showing research projects or demonstrations can be viewed by visiting students. It give them an understanding of why they've been taking those math and science courses, for all these years.
We welcome businesses in engineering and technology to join with these leading universities and support Engineering Expo. Become a Silver, Platinum or exhibitor sponsor of our event. Do it for our future, do it for our kids.

Infrastructure – think of a delivery system – how does anything get from one place to another.
It is all over the news how infrastructure in the United States is crumbling, computer networks are under cyber attacks by hackers, our public transportation system is old and in need of updating, our power grid relies upon 1960s technology.
With the help of your teacher, coach or mentor, choose a category in the broad spectrum of Infrastructure. Get as focused as you would like. Some areas you can explore:
An adult coach, teacher or mentor will need to register the team and be present the day of the Expo. The team’s students must be in grades 5-8. Register by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 15, 2015. A judging rubric is available on the Contest –
