Come join us in our new K12 Engineering Outreach campus lab! We are excited to announce the opening of our very first on-campus lab dedicated to K12 Engineering exploration and outreach. We offer 4 Engineering lessons designed for small groups to explore and learn about Engineering in an engaging environment.

  1. Renewable Energy Lesson: Students will learn about renewable energy through solar demonstrations, wind experiments, and other renewable sources. Students will also tour the College of Engineering labs.
  2. Electrical Engineering: Students will experiment with circuits and wires and learn about how electricity is made. Students will also tour the College of Engineering labs.
  3. Civil Engineering: Students will tour our campus shake tables and will create their own towers to test on our miniature shake table.
  4. Aerospace Engineering: Students will learn about the principals of flight and new aerospace innovations such as drones and unmanned autonomous systems (UAS). Students will tour a UAS lab and will make their own airplanes or hovercraft to test out their skills.
