Rose-Hulman's Explore Engineering program will give students in the sixth through 10th grades opportunities to explore how airplanes fly, create vehicles from edible materials, and learn how engineers tackle problems that make a difference in the world.

Activities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields are planned on the following dates at Rose-Hulman:

February 3 - Students will have the opportunity to learn about engineering careers from three Delphi Automotive Electronics and Safety engineers. There will also be a display of a Consumer Electronics Show demonstration vehicle, and youths will work in teams to construct an automotive radio.

March 17 - Youths will explore the principles of the engineering design process by participating in an Edible Engineering Contest. Teams will construct the fastest car or tallest tower from a variety of food products.

April 28 - Students can explore various STEM fields with dozens of hands-on activities and demonstrations at the annual Rose-Hulman STEM Fair on campus.

Each of these events is free and scheduled from 6-8:30 p.m., starting in Room M-137 of Myers Hall at Rose-Hulman.

More information about the Explore Engineering program, including registration forms, can be found here or by contacting the Office of Admissions.

Rose-Hulman's Blue Key National Honor Society organizes Explore Engineering activities.
