As part of the registration, you are asked to provide the names of up to seven students to register, plus there is an opportunity to add students to the wait list. Although the form says there is a limit of seven (7) students on the wait list, we have removed that limit. You can add as many students as you wish.

Due to space limitations, attendance is limited to no more than one registered adult per seven registered students (substitutions are permitted with notice).

You are also asked to sign up students for specific events:

We encourage you to sign up different students for each of these sessions so that all students have an opportunity to meet with the engineers and exhibitors who will be available all morning to talk to the students.

Registration for Exhibitors including Companies, Societies, Universities and Colleges

Come join us to provide a fun filled morning of hands-on activities, games, and demonstrations that will inform and inspire students about engineering!

Click HERE to register

There is no charge to be an exhibitor. A table will be provided for each exhibitor. No electricity will be available.

We ask you to provide a few engineers to provide hands-on activities, games, demonstrations, etc. for middle-school (grades 6,7 and 8) students that helps to explain an engineering principle, provides information about your discipline of engineering or what your organization does, or in some other way promotes engineering, at an age-appropriate level. We do want the students to have plenty of time to visit the other exhibitors and also sign up for the moving parts workshop or one of the speakers, so please keep your activity or demonstration brief.

Please bring a generous supply of bling to hand out as we expect about 300 students to attend.
