Engineers Day at University of Kentucky (Feb. 25)

Owning/Managing Organization: University of Kentucky College of Engineering

Program Description:
Engineers Day, or E-Day, is a celebration of everything engineering has to offer. From building bridges to discovering new medications to writing the software that powers our cell phones, engineers and computer scientists do the things that make our 21st-century world work.

This year’s E-Day celebration at the University of Kentucky in Lexington is on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. CST in Paducah. E-Day comes at the end of Engineers Week, an annual event sponsored by a coalition of more than 100 professional societies, major corporations and government agencies dedicated to promoting math and science literacy and ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce.

Program Outcomes:
There are all kinds of things to see and do at E-Day. You’ll be able to explore many of our research and computer labs to see what our students do. Approximately 150 demonstrations, exhibits and contests hosted by UK Students and Departments, government organizations, and industry will be featured.

Time Details: 

The event is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST in Lexington and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. CST in Paducah. E-Day is a “come and go” type event. Most activities do not a have start time, although a few contests (Egg Drop come to mind) will have a definitive time for judging. Most people find that they can’t make it around to every exhibit and contest because we have so many, so it is advisable to get here close to 9 am.

Cost Details: 

Completely free! (Even the parking is free!)

Prize Details: 

Many of our exhibits are hands-on, interactive, or even contests. Prizes range from a piece of candy to UK branded merchandise, to t-shirts or even bigger items such as tablets.
