Targeted at schools with STEM-themed academies, including the 13 Future Ready Institutes in Hamilton County Schools, UTC CECS is proud to offer this opportunity for high school students, their families, and high school personnel to experience hands-on activities, visit our facilities, learn about Engineering and Computer Science, and witness “A Day in the Life”!  We will have various activities including Soil Classification and Bridge Design, Rocket Design and Baja Car Demonstration, Drone Control, Chem-E Car, Building Block Demonstration, and Cyber Security.  Additionally, representatives from Financial Aid will present pertinent info., and a student panel will answer questions and discuss all aspects of being a CECS student.
