Today’s Students. Tomorrow’s Leaders.
Started in 1998 as the flagship event for the Society of Women Engineers Wichita Professional Section, the FREE Engineering Expo features hands-on activities for kids in grades K-8 that expose them to how STEM relates to the world around us. “What is STEM?” you may ask. It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. By exposing children to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they are continually challenged to understand why things are the way they are. We hope to help them question things while giving them the ability to find the answers.

Who is in charge of the Expo?
The Society of Women Engineers, Wichita Professional Section is in charge of organizing the Expo every year, but we wouldn’t be able to achieve this without many of the wonderful companies around the Wichita area sponsoring this event. There are many levels of sponsorship (see Sponsorship page if interested), but every little bit helps! We are always grateful to partner with people from the community to make this event the best it can be!
Things to keep in mind:
Last year, we had over 1,700 children (not including adults), so please plan adult supervision accordingly for however many children you intend on bringing. Also, there will be some activities outside, so plan accordingly for the weather.
The Expo staff can be seen in Staff shirts the day of the event as well as volunteers in Volunteer shirts. If you need help the day of, those are the folks you’ll be looking for!
