FIU Engineering Expo
On February 21, 2014 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
FIU Engineering Center
The FIU Engineering Expo is a community outreach event organized by the FIU College of Engineering and Computing. The FIU Engineering Expo has become a legacy event for students at the college and the community; the Expo 2013 was the 12th annual expo. All of the FIU College of Engineering and Computing research and learning labs are opened for tours, there are contests, presentations and “hands on”projects making the Expo an unforgettable experience.
The Engineering Expo 2014 will be held Friday February 21, 2014, from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM at the FIU Engineering Center on Flagler Street and 107th Avenue. Any school interested in attending the Expo should contact Stephanie Strange at firstname.lastname@example.org and request an invitation, then make a reservation.
On the day of the event, over 1400 students from Miami Dade and Broward County Schools (elementary, middle and high schools) come to the FIU Engineering Center for an inter-active, multi-faceted program lasting 5 hours. The event starts with opening ceremonies that include a color honor guard, stirring call to action by the Dean and an inspiring speech by a special guest speaker. This year our guest speaker was Robin Hensley CTO & VP of Tyco Retail Solutions, and our first woman guest speaker.
After the opening ceremony, groups of 20 students are led by undergraduate engineering student volunteers to visit the various research and teaching labs and participate in “hands on” events and contests. Lunch is provided for all.
If you are interested in attending the FIU CEC Engineering Expo 2013 please contact Stephanie Strange at email@example.com for reservations. Schools are responsible for their own transportation but the event is free.
