Kids smiling at the Discover Engineering Days The College of Engineering started Discover Engineering Days to introduce middle school students and their teachers to the various fields in engineering and the engineering programs offered at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The event is hosted by the college's student organizations and is filled with hands-on activities that apply math, science and creative thinking skills. Students are responsible for bringing their own sack lunches.

As the only engineering college in the state of Nebraska, we are dedicated to STEM outreach for your students. If you were interested in attending DED on a date that is now full, please feel free to contact the college for other outreach opportunities. Along with Discover Engineering Days, the College of Engineering is happy to work with individual schools and classrooms to:
  • Provide reading materials about engineering and our Nebraska programs
  • Provide K-12 Engineering curriculum resources
  • Schedule in-class presentations conducted by engineering ambassadors
  • Arrange visits to either our Lincoln or Omaha campuses.
For more information on these possibilities and many others, please contact Sally Wei.
