Sharing the excitement of engineering

June 13, 2019

There’s one foolproof way to get elementary and middle school students excited about engineering: hands-on activities. During the annual two-day Discovery Days event on April 25-26, students and faculty from all UW engineering departments shared their work with 4th through 8th grade students. CEE students coordinated 17 exhibits with activities such as testing structures on a shake table and learning how to remove microorganisms from water. This year’s event brought more than 8,900 elementary and middle school students to campus.
