As in years past, participants will take part in a variety of activities and competitions designed to provide insight into different types of science, technology, engineering and math concepts. New to the event this year will be a parent/educator workshop.
“We are inviting parents and educators to come for a one-and-half hour workshop where we’ll discuss ways they can encourage young students to get them excited about opportunities through STEM,” said SWE President Emma Latham, a junior majoring in biomedical engineering. “This will include a panel of engineers and educators. We hope this will give our event a bigger impact, since they’ll leave with ideas and tools they need to encourage STEM education throughout the year.”
Each event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18 and Saturday, Feb. 25 at UAB’s Business and Engineering Complex at 1150 10th Ave. S.
The cost is $30, and includes a t-shirt and lunch. To register, visit Kids in Engineering online.
