Lab Exhibits

9 am – 4 pm

One of Engineers’ Week’s oldest traditions, Lab Exhibits are held on Thursday. Through lab exhibits, MU engineers can demonstrate their work and passions to elementary, middle school and high school students. During a field trip, students will learn what engineering is like in a college setting. Lab exhibits are stationed along tour routes in Lafferre Hall and Engineering Building West. Exhibit topics cover biological, chemical, civil, electrical & computer, industrial and mechanical engineering. Each exhibit runs for 5 minutes and follow a predetermined route. Due to strict time scheduling, picking and choosing specific exhibits is not permitted. Each tour group consists of 1 tour guide, 15 students and 1 adult chaperone. All tours are pre-assigned and run every 15 minutes. They last 2 hours. Sign-up times are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.

This is one of the events where department participation points will be tallied. A total will be taken at the end of the week, and the department that shows the most spirit during E-week will be announced at St. Patrick’s Ball.

E-Week trivia fact: Lab exhibits are one of the oldest traditions. The first exhibits were held in 1905.
