Students from Missouri S&T design teams will share their expertise and enthusiasm at the SciFest Engineering Expo at the Saint Louis Science Center from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24. Visitors can stop by S&T’s booth to try a planting activity with the Sustainable Engineering Team, a paper rocket launcher from the Rocket Design Team, and more.

The Saint Louis Science Center is located in the Oakland Building at 5050 Oakland Avenue in St. Louis. Missouri S&T’s display will be in Boeing Hall South on the first floor of the building. Entry to the Science Center is free, but parking costs $15. SciFest is a series of free expos designed to connect families and visitors of all ages with experts and professionals in science, engineering, technology and math.

Founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers, National Engineers Week is a nationwide celebration designed to promote interest in engineering and technology careers. “Welcome to the Future” is the theme of this year’s Engineers Week, which begins Sunday, Feb. 18, and continues through Saturday, Feb. 24.

Missouri S&T’s design teams are registered student organizations that operate as 501(c) non-profit businesses. The teams work like small start-up companies, bringing together students from different disciplines to work on large-scale projects. In addition to hands-on design and manufacturing experience, students gain experience in project management, fundraising and public relations.
