Middle and High School Innovation and Creativity Day

Precollege Student Voting: During the morning on Design Day all visiting precollege students view Engineering Projects and vote.

During this time college students have a chance to interact with “non-engineering” students who demonstrate the underlying principles from their projects. This interaction allows the college students an opportunity to practice explaining engineering concepts to non-engineers. As the precollege students work their way through the wide variety of presentations, they get an overview of the many different branches of engineering. Additionally, as the precollege students see both entry-level and advanced engineering applications, it allows them to see the natural progression of engineering. Lastly, this session also provides a chance for the precollege students to interact with student organizations within the College of Engineering.
