The College of Engineering is excited to announce the inaugural Buckeye Engineering Grandparents Day!
A fun-filled day for engineering grandparents to bring their grandchild(ren) – ages 7-12 – back to campus to show them what engineering is all about. Hands-on STEM-related activities throughout the day to show just how fun and exciting engineering can be.
You will create lifelong memories as a family, and who knows, maybe you will be planting a Buckeye seed in their minds to follow in your footsteps!
The format for the day will include opening and closing group remarks and then attendees will have the chance to select two (2) activity sessions from the master list to fill out their day.
