In recognition of National Engineers Week, Missouri University of Science and Technology will send almost a dozen of its student design teams to the St. Louis Science Center to display their inventions in late-February.

The Science Center will host Missouri S&T’s teams all day on Saturday, Feb. 22, and Sunday, Feb. 23. The teams will all have members on-hand to answer questions about their respective projects.

The teams will include: Mars Rover Design Team, Advanced Aero Vehicle Team, Human Powered Vehicle Team, Formula SAE Team, Baja Vehicle SAE Team, Solar Car Team and Solar House Team. Each team will have examples of its work on display for visitors.

“Engineers Week at the St. Louis Science Center is a great chance for the design teams to educate the public about their work,” says Bob Phelan, outreach manager of the Student Design and Experiential Learning Center at S&T. “We hope to get young students excited about the opportunities in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.”
