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.

Applewhite is a Knight Fellow, a New York Times Fellow, and a Columbia Journalism School Age Boom Fellow.

This program is intended to make the museum's art-making accessible to all needs and provide an opportunity for siblings to spend time with each other and with peers who have similar experiences.If a child with a physical disability doesn't have a sibling to attend the session with him or her, the child may bring along a friend instead. Each session offers a new workshop that is designed to meet the needs of the participants. This program is staffed with CMA teaching artists and a licensed occupational therapist(s).?This program is based on a class-like model in which the teaching artists and the OT work to facilitate the group experience, with a keen eye towards the special needs of the participants;?if your child requires dedicated one-on-one attention you should consider bringing a paraprofessional or other adult to help facilitate your child's experience. Parents are encouraged to drop off their children, though they are welcome to stay if they wish or remain close by in another part of the museum. To sign up for a session, discuss your child's needs with the program director in advance of the session. Contact Rachel for more information at [email protected]
