Engineering Discovery Days

Save the dates for Discovery Days 2018!

Thursday, April 19 and Friday, April 20
9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

At Engineering Discovery Days, students and faculty from all UW engineering departments share their work with students, teachers, families and the community. Both days are oriented toward 4th through 8th grade students and feature hands-on activities that demonstrate the exciting work of engineers.

We hope you will join us for hands-on fun and learning. The 2-day event is free and open to everyone. Registration is required for all who plan to participate and will open in January 2018.

NOTE: Discovery Days is shifting from a Friday/Saturday format to Thursday/Friday to meet the high demand for the elementary and middle school students.

High school and community college students can learn more about UW College of Engineering admission and events and tours.
