More About the Conference

“Truss me, I’m an Engineer”

Get that creative brain to work. Build trusses from popsicle sticks and test their durability!

The Great Engineering Race

Diverse teams will be formed to race through campus to win the ultimate prize! Race through a series of stations that will require correct answers to engineering related questions. Some may be general, others not so simple!

Budget Water Bottle Rockets

In this hands-on activity, students will be designing, building, and launching their very own high apogee water bottle rockets. There are many scientific concepts that can be introduced through constructing this rocket like: inertia, gravity, air resistance, Newton’s law of motion, acceleration and more.

Sponsored by Google. More information coming soon!

Participate in a personalized tour of the University of Central Florida campus!

Get a first glance of some valuable resources available on campus for students pursuing a STEM degree, as well as insight into what your future collegiate career may look like.
