Penn State’s College of Engineering is holding its Young Innovators Fair on the June 10-11 weekend this year to inspire the next generation of engineers, writes Samantha Chavanic for PennState News.
The event will show visitors how engineers take their knowledge and bring benefits to the world. It also highlights the Multidisciplinary Engineering Design option within the General Engineering degree at Penn State.
This degree is available through a partnership between the Penn State Abington College, Penn State Brandywine, and the School of Graduate Professional Studies at Penn State Great Valley.
The science, technology, engineering and math exhibition was held last year at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks. It focused on the importance of STEM disciplines and their role as building blocks of innovation.
Over 20,000 students and their families got a chance to experiment and learn from some of the best experts in STEM fields.
“It’s important to show parents and children that right here in Philadelphia, Penn State offers amazing STEM degrees,” said Kathryn Jablokow, a coordinator for the GE-MDE degree.
“It’s important for our faculty to see where our students are coming from – their current challenges, questions, and what they are curious about.”
