Engineering Design EXPO Goes Virtual Today
April 30, 2020
The University of Idaho College of Engineering hosts its virtual Engineering Design EXPO starting today, May 1, and invites the public to experience the ways U of I students are pushing the boundaries of technology. Electronic posters from this year’s student teams are available on the EXPO website. U of I team projects will be judged and scored today during private Zoom sessions, and recorded sessions will be available online soon.
The event includes an Extended Experience for fifth through 12th graders May 4-21. Participants can enter to win scholarships and prizes by walking through hands-on activities that can be easily completed at home and remotely exploring senior projects from current U of I students. High school students can enter to win a $4,000 U of I scholarship, and younger students can win an iPad and other STEM-focused prizes.
Now in its 27th year, EXPO is the longest-running student engineering and technological innovation showcase in the Pacific Northwest. The on-campus event normally welcomes hundreds of K-12 students, industry partners and community members to explore industry-sponsored projects designed by current U of I students.
