Looking for something educational, entertaining, and inexpensive to do with the kids? A FREE Engineering Expo will be held in Wichita this March with fun, hands-on activities and workshops.
This annual Engineering Expo is presented by the Wichita section of the Society of Women Engineers to give kids an opportunity to learn how engineering relates to the world around us.
Organizations and businesses from the community will have booths and STEM activities that showcase various fields of engineering.
You can stop in any time during the expo to visit whatever booths interest you and participate in various hands-on activities.
The activities are intended for girls and boys in grades K-8.
They will also have workshops during the event specifically for kids in 6th – 8th grade. The special middle-school workshops are free, but you do need to get a ticket when you arrive.
All participants must have a parent or guardian present during the Expo.
The 2019 Engineering Expo will be held March 30 at Century II from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
You can stop in any time and stay for as long as you like – just don’t wait until it’s almost closing time or you won’t have time to get to all the activities and booths.
Date: Saturday, March 30, 2019
Time: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Location: Century II Convention and Exhibition Halls, 225 W. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS 67202

“Started in 1998 as the flagship event for the Society of Women Engineers Wichita Professional Section, the FREE Engineering Expo features hands-on activities for kids in grades K-8 that expose them to how STEM relates to the world around us.
“What is STEM?” you may ask. It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. By exposing children to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they are continually challenged to understand why things are the way they are. We hope to help them question things while giving them the ability to find the answers.”
