Student-powered expo will showcase Sac State’s innovation

Nelsen at Super SundayThe student-hosted 2016 Engineering & Computer Science Exposition at Sacramento State will be the largest and most ambitious yet – and is expected to attract 700 adults and children to the campus.

The expo from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 12, will be held in three locations: the University Union Ballroom, the third floor of the Union, and nearby Serna Plaza. It will feature the best and brightest extracurricular projects by students and student clubs from Sac State’s College of Engineering and Computer Science. Many of those participating are preparing for intense intercollegiate competitions over the next few months.

Activities showcased at the expo will include the Hornet Racing team’s Formula SAE-style race car; the solar cabin being designed for Sac State’s entry in the SMUD Tiny House Competition; the work of the Concrete Canoe (pictured) and Steel Bridge competition teams of civil engineering students; the Competitive Robotics club’s Robot Rumble; and computer science students’ work in computer graphics and games, and cybersecurity.

“I want to showcase what we do in the college, to show everyone the possibilities that occur outside of the classroom,” says Peter Avalos, president of the student-run Engineering and Computer Science Joint Council.
