10th Annual Lower Hudson Valley Engineering EXPO - White Plains High School
April 07, 2013 - White Plains

See and learn how everything is made, from robots to bridges, buildings, cars, and cell phones. Chances are whatever you do today, an engineer had a role in it. Find out how engineering impacts what we eat, how we work, play, learn, travel, communicate, and stay healthy, at the 10th Annual Lower Hudson Valley Engineering EXPO on Sunday, April 7th, at White Plains High School. This fun, hands-on learning event is free. Doors open at 11am, and the EXPO runs until 4pm at White Plains High School, 550 North Street in White Plains. Free parking is provided and food/beverages will be available for purchase. Plus, there will be plenty of giveaways and prizes, including Apple iPads. More information is available at beanengineer.org, and on facebook/lowerhudsonvalleyengineeringexpo. More than 100 engineering exhibitors are participating, including representatives from over 40 of the region's leading learning institutions such as Rutgers, Cornell, Columbia, Penn State, Villanova, Manhattan, RPI, and SUNY. All fields of engineering will be featured: Civil, Structural, Chemical, Electrical, Biomedical, Computer, Mechanical, Petrochemical, Environmental, Materials, and Nuclear. Engineering EXPO founder and organizer Mal McLaren, president and CEO of McLaren Engineering Group of West Nyack, NY says engineering ranks No. 1 in career opportunities for college graduates, and he encourages parents of children as young as middle schoolers to attend Engineering EXPO to expose them to the field. "Engineers play a key role in virtually everything we do," McLaren says. "However, US businesses are experiencing a shortage of engineers, with 89% saying they have difficulty filling engineering positions. Our country and economy needs many more trained engineers, and the EXPO is designed to help meet this demand by encouraging more students to pursue engineering studies." "If you have a child with an aptitude and interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), it would be a Sunday very well spent April 7th at the Engineering EXPO," McLaren says.
