Engineering Programs Inspiring the Community (EPIC) Lab

Are you a parent of a student interested in engineering? Are you a scout leader looking for engineering opportunities for your scout troop or child’s science club? Are you a home-school parent looking for supplemental activities? Join University of Nevada, Reno students on a Saturday for our in-person EPIC Lab!

The EPIC Lab provides exciting, hands-on lessons in various engineering topics, designed for students in sixth through 12th grade. Students can expect to learn about one discipline of engineering and participate in two to three interactive learning opportunities. Lesson topics change every three to six months.
Students work with staff on EPIC Lab projects
