CSU, Chico Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is excited to host our fifth annual STEM education outreach event, Imagineer Day, for the children in and around the Chico community!
This one-day event, hosted on March 25th, 2017 at the CSU, Chico College of Engineering, will provide 220 local children, grades K-6, an opportunity to engage in hands-on lab experiments that demonstrate basic engineering concepts in its multiple disciplines. Each participant will engage in four different lab experiments based on grade level. Come experience what it's like to be an engineer for a day by participating in experiments that explore Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, Environmental, Electrical, Biomedical and Aerospace Engineering!
Due to popular demand, we are excited to announce that we will be adding a NEW 7th-8th grade full-day Robotics lab for 10 lucky students!
Your contribution of $16.82 ($15.00 + fee) provides each participant with snacks throughout the day, lunch, and a full day of engineering activities! A unique "Imagineer Day 2017" t-shirt, goodie-bag, and an "Imagineer" certificate of participation are our gifts to you.

Q1: What are my parking options? Where is Check-In located?
A1: The parking garage on the corner of West 1st Street and Ivy Street (as well as street parking) offers free parking on weekends. Check-In is located between the Langdon and O'Connell engineering buildings, as shown by a red "X" on the map below:
Q2: Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
A2: Although this does make Check-In faster, it is not necessary. We will have printed listed of all participants who purchased tickets through EventBrite.
Q3: What should my child bring into the event?
A3: Your child does not need to bring anything with them, but we encourage them to bring a small bag or backpack to store excess clothing (we will provide an event t-shirt which we encourage them to wear during the event) and take-home goodies from their labs.
Q4: What's the refund policy?
A4: Refunds can be provided up to two weeks before the event (March 10, 2017). No refunds will be provided for “no-shows”.
Q5: Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
A5: Unfortunately, we cannot allow anyone other than the original participant (whose name is on the ticket) to take the place of another child.
Q6: When is the last day to register? Can I register on the day of the event?
A6: Tickets can be purchased through EventBrite until March 10, 2017. Tickets will not be sold on the day-of the event.
Q7: Can I update my registration information?
A7: If you need to update your participant's registration information, please email our Section Public Relations Chair, Shelby Freese, at email@example.com.
Q8: Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
A8: Unfortunately, we cannot allow anyone other than the original participant (whose name is on the ticket) to take the place of another child.
Q9: Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
A9: The name on the ticket and registration should match the name of the participant (not the parent/guardian name). While this error would render an inconvenience for SWE, it would not mean that your child cannot participate.
Q10: I am not a parent or guardian of a prospective participant, but can I still sign her/him up? Can I register my child through her Girl Scouts troop?
A10: Only parents and guardians of a participant may purchase said participant’s ticket. All participants must register individually through EventBrite.
Q11: My child wants to be paired with her sister/brother/friend/Girl Scout troop throughout the day. Can SWE make this happen?
A11: In order to promote group collaboration, subgroups of 27 participants based on grade (K-3 or 4-6) are selected randomly, so no participants are guaranteed to be placed together. However, in extreme cases, we will do our best to accommodate: please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q12: As a parent/guardian/group leader, can I attend Imagineer Day along with my child?
A12: In an effort to encourage each participant to collaborate and make friendships, we kindly ask that you not accompany your child throughout the day. However, if your child has a disability which requires your assistance, please contact us at email@example.com and we would be happy to make accommodations.
Q13: My child has an allergy. Can SWE make accommodations?
A13: Please indicate allergies of any kind during registration so we can plan to make accommodations for your child ahead of time. As far as food allergies, vegetarian and gluten-free lunch options will be provided. If further food accommodations need to be made, please provide your child with his or her own lunch.
Q14: Where can I contact the event organizer if I have any other questions?
A14: Shelby Freese (Section Public Relations Chair) and Rachel Avalos (Section President) can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
