Chances are whatever you do today an engineer had a role in it. Come find out how engineering impacts what we eat, how we work, play and learn, to how we travel, communicate and stay healthy at the 12th Annual Lower Hudson Valley Engineering EXPO on Sunday, March 22nd, from 11am to 4 PM at White Plains High School.

Engineering EXPO is a fun, hands-on learning event free for all ages of students and adults. The doors open at 11 a.m. and the EXPO runs to 4 p.m. at White Plains High School, 550 North Street in White Plains. Free parking is provided and food/beverages are available for purchase. Plus, there will be plenty of giveaways and hourly prizes including five headsets by "Beats Dre Solo HD”. More information is available at www.beanengineer.org and on Facebook/LowerHudsonValleyEngineeringExpo.

Back by popular demand, it's the middle school “Investigating our Infrastructure Challenge" and for high school students a Rube Goldberg machine contest to “Erase A Chalkboard” competition.

More than 100 engineering exhibitors are participating, including representatives from over 40 of the region’s leading learning institutions such as Rutgers, Cornell, Villanova, Manhattan, RPI, Lehigh. WCC, Tufts, SUNY and many more local and regional colleges. 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, said "Engineering ranks no.1 in career opportunities for college graduates and I encourage parents of school-aged children, as young as middle school, to attend the Engineering EXPO to expose them to the field. Engineers play a key role in virtually everything we do. However, U.S. 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 March 22nd at the Engineering EXPO.
