Khana Khazana Features Thai Cuisine
This weeks Khana Khazana food trailer will feature Thai cuisine. Pad Thai — fistfuls of small, thin noodles dropped into a searing hot wok for a steamy minute long dance alongside crunchy bean sprouts, onion and egg. A truly interactive eating experience, half its fun and flavor lies in the quartet of accompanying condiments — fish sauce, sugar, chili powder and finely ground peanuts. Choose from shrimp, chicken or tofu.

EXPO’S and WORKSHOPS
Register Now – Tech Expos for Summer Youth Programs Students
During the weeks of June 22-28 and July 6-12, Summer Youth Programs will be hosting three of our main scholarship summer camps: Women in Engineering (WIE), Engineering Scholars Program (ESP), and Women in Computer Science (WiCS). As part of these camps, we host an expo about all things Michigan Tech. This expo includes representatives from many student organizations, campus departments, Enterprise teams, and club sports. The expos are on June 24 and July 8 from 4:00 – 5:00 pm in the MUB Ballroom.
The purpose of the “Tech Expo” is to give these bright students a feeling of what life is like at Michigan Tech. All of the participants have applied and been accepted to the program based on academic performance, extracurricular activities, and teacher recommendations — they are very driven and interesting young people! WIE and WiCS are entirely female camps (a total of around 180 women), and ESP welcome 150 students (both male and female).
If you or someone else in your organization is here for the summer and would be interested in hosting a booth, please fill out the information below. Last year we hosted several dozen tables, and we are striving to make this year’s Expo the best yet! If you have any questions about the event or our programs, please feel welcome to contact Liz Fujita (firstname.lastname@example.org).
