Past Activities:

Ear Trumpets 
Participants will be split into groups of 4 where they will design and construct a hearing device to help partially deaf people and learn about biomedical engineering.

Dirty Water Filtering 
Participants will be challenged to create and construct a filtration system to clean dirty water with certain supplies provided. This will be a chance to learn about environmental engineering in a hands on manner.

Catapults
Participants will work in groups of 2 to create catapults and experiment with the distances objects of various mass can be propelled by their handmade simple machines.

Majors Fair
We will have our SWE members represent the top engineering majors offered at most universities. The participants will be able to travel to the various tables and learn more about
each specific major with a brief poster presentation.

Parent’s Program
Please join us for the FREE Parent Program portion of Saturday’s event. The Parent Program will be from 9am-12pm. GradSWE volunteers will present on topics such as STEM Gender Bias and How to Get to College, as well as some action items that you can bring back to the home to encourage your children to explore a STEM career.
