This year features both come-and-go hands-on activities as well as more in-depth challenges and experiences. Get creative while learning about electrical engineering with circuits, aerospace engineering through flight, and so much more! There will even be REAL engineers from many fields on-site to guide activities and answer any of your questions about how a career in engineering could be perfect for YOU!

 Here are just a few of the experiences planned:

  • Eclectic Electric Engineering-Get creative with Mouser Electronics as you learn how to build circuits using nontraditional items like metal tape and steel thread.

  •  Focus on Flight- Be a pilot in a real Lockheed Martin flight simulator and construct amazing flying machines while learning how planes are made.
