We are looking for nonprofits and STEM outreach groups to provide interactive, hands-on activities or demos that illustrate electrical and computer engineering concepts, with emphasis on the fun over the fundamentals.
The Edison Lecture Series is an interactive STEM learning experience that engages middle and high school students with the fun side of electrical and computer engineering. Edison attendees learn the fundamentals of an engineering topic through a university-style lecture, then see these concepts come to life through hands-on demos.
The 2018 Edison Lecture Series will take place on February 9 at The University of Texas at Austin's new Engineering Education and Research building. Demos and activities that relate to this year’s lecture theme of "Autonomous Vehicles" are especially encouraged, but any activities that relate to electrical and computer engineering are welcome. Exhibitors should prepare for about 900 attendees to come through the exhibit hall in 3 hours.
The Edison Lecture Series is brought to you by The University of Texas at Austin Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Edison has reached over 28,000 Central Texas students since its inception in 2005. Be part of the excitement!
