Event description

Description

Help us celebrate graduating Project Lead The Way students as they share their senior capstone projects from the Engineering Design and Development and Biomedical Innovations courses. These student teams have tackled real-world problems through a rigorous process that includes collaborating with their peers, seeking advice from industry mentors and using the skills and knowledge gained through PLTW to develop and test solutions. Join us in Union Station's Sprint Festival Plaza for a showcase of their innovative findings.

Immediately after the showcase, we will announce winners of the Engineering Design and Biomedical Research and Design Contests, as well as the Innovator Awards. These contests are made possible with the support of our Platinum sponsors, with special thanks to Commerce Bank, the Kansas City Startup Foundation and KCSourceLink for direct support of the contest.

SCHEDULE

9-11 a.m. Showcase of Projects

11:30 a.m. Awards Ceremony

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

As this program grows, we want to be sure all students have a chance to present their projects to others so they can practice their sales and presentation skills. We're seeking volunteers willing to spend about 30 minutes talking to an assigned list of student teams during the event. If you can help, please indicate that on the registration form. We appreciate your help!
