Come learn from our Industry Partners!

K-6th Grade: Come learn from engineers from Praxair, MOOG, Canon Design, KHEOPS Architecture, Engineering & Survey, and many more companies about what they do! Participate in hands-on activities and watch cool demonstrations! Parent supervision required. A great opportunity for parents to learn about STEM careers and how to encourage students to pursue higher education. 

7-8th Grade: Our veteran robotics teachers will work with students to learn about engineering and how the world around us works. Through Lego robotics, young boys and girls can express their creativity and expand their thinking. Parents welcome but supervision not required. 

9-12th Grade: Come learn from engineers from Praxair, MOOG, Canon Design, KHEOPS Architecture, Engineering & Survey, and many more companies about what they do, the science behind the madness, and how to pursue a career in their fields. Ever thought about how traffic is handled? Curious about medical devices? Want to learn about the environment and air quality? How about military equipment? Electrical Engineering?
