USF Engineering Expo

The University of South Florida College of Engineering personally invites you to the 39th annual Engineering EXPO! Located in USF's engineering complex, this free exhibition seeks to educate K-12 students on the importance of engineering, science, technology, and math in their lives. EXPO is held on the 18th and 19th of February 2011, taking place from 9am to 4pm on both days.

Last year the USF Engineering EXPO had more than 6,000 elementary, middle and high school students in attendance. Guests have the opportunity to visit interactive booths and shows put on by over 30 USF student organizations, 10 research laboratories, 15 engineering and science departments, and many local corporations.

All of our exhibits are designed to be interactive - to teach students while entertaining them. This is a great opportunity for college-bound students to learn about USF Engineering and for students of all ages to gain an interest in the fields of engineering, science, technology, and math.

Popular shows at Engineering EXPO typically include:

• Physics: The Science of Everything

• Chemistry Magic Show

• Laser Light Show

In previous years, corporations that have provided exhibits include TECO Energy, NASA, Honeywell, Raytheon, and Sypris Electronics. All of these corporations offer demonstrations and activities while giving students a unique opportunity to meet with local engineers.

This year BBQ by Lupton's will be catering the event. Lunch runs from 10am to 2pm and the costs for a complete meal will be $5-$8 depending on selections. Vegetarian options will be available. More detailed information about the catering menu will be available closer to the event date on our website, as well as other important updates. T-shirts, snacks, and souvenirs are also available for purchase throughout the day.
