A wonderful engineering event occurred on March 20.  This hands-on learning opportunity was supported by Pella, 3M, Cargill, Vermeer, John Deere, ISU, Iowa and UNI!   This was a tremendously successful outreach to multiple communities.   Hopefully, we have provided that extra spark for the young students attending to consider an engineering or technical career later in life and tangible resources for their parents to help support them.

The event statistics:
3 hours, 300+ people, 6 activities and a whole lot of fun!
115 students, 128 parents/chaperones, and 105 volunteers from Pella, 3M, Cargill, Vermeer, John Deere, ISU, Iowa and UNI
15 different schools represented!
