Do you know a child who likes to take things apart and rebuild them, or who asks questions like, "Why do the lights turn on when you flip the switch?"
If so, we encourage you to check out one of our Design Expos where undergraduate engineering students demonstrate their inventions and innovations to the community. These popular events are held each year in April and December, and are great fun for the entire family.
Our Badge Days Program allows Brownies and Girl Scouts to explore engineering with their troop. Girls can work on merit badges with CU engineering students who lead after-school workshops. See how chemicals can be used to blow up a balloon or learn about the moon, planets, and stars.
The Colorado Space Grant Consortium sponsors activities related to space education for K-12 students, offers group tours and workshops at CU Boulder as well as at local schools.
Engineering faculty participate in the CU Wizards Program, which hosts science and engineering events for students. Shows are held monthly on the Boulder campus.
