Engineering EXPO 2024 Attracts Students, Parents Exploring P.E. Careers

More than 3,000 students and parents attended the Tri-State ENGINEERING EXPO held at White Plains High School on Sun., April 14.

WHITE PLAINS NY—The popular annual exposition promoting STEM subjects, the Tri-State ENGINEERING EXPO, returned to White Plains High School on Sun., April 14, attracting more than 3,000 students and parents to 120 table-top exhibits, many with interactive features.

This year’s edition of the science and education fair showcased 45 engineering schools as well as a few eye-popping presentations, including the always-popular robotics demonstrations —all with the goal to encourage students to pursue careers in engineering.

Many of the top engineering and technology companies attended to answer questions and serve as resources when young engineers graduate and enter the job market.

Founded two decades ago (2003), this year’s event fulfilled its promise to be unlike any other science and education fair in the tristate region. “Its long history to attract students with their parents—as well as many of the leading colleges and universities for hard sciences—makes this a one-of-a-kind showcase to discuss college programs that span science, technology, engineering and construction,” explained Jim Caggiano of the New York State Society of Professions Engineers, a leading organizer of the program.

“Everyone looks for opportunities to learn first-hand about the education avenues available in engineering, and the Engineering EXPO makes all this possible in just four hours in one place. Families can question representatives of colleges, universities and academies from across the country.”

The EXPO covers the gamut, from computer and civil engineering to petroleum and biochemical engineering and nanotechnology, Mr. Caggiano added. “Students also can learn about college curriculum offerings, admission requirements and financial assistance information.”

Over the past 20 years, the EXPO has attracted many of the leading learning institutions. Highlights from this year’s show included “TECH Chicks” for the middle school students, dozens of engineering colleges, tech societies and consultant engineering firms to discuss job opportunities following graduation. Major sponsors were PepsiCo and SIKA USA.
