What is a Tech Expo?: Tech Expos are an opportunity to showcase all things Michigan Tech.  From academic departments to students organizations and enterprises, Tech Expos bring groups from all over campus to inform our participants about everything Michigan Tech has to offer.  The WIE and ESP programs are comprised of 150 incredibly bright and talented high school students from across the country. The ESP program is co-ed, and as the name implies, WIE is made up of all females.  Our Women in Computer Science (WICS) program will also be attending the ESP expo on July 25th.  This program is comprised of 20 high school females doing a week-long computer science curriculum.
Groups presenting at the Tech Expo will be assigned (1) 6-foot table to showcase information about their organization or department.  Students will be free to wander, visiting booths at their own pace.
This is a great way to recruit future Huskies.  About 10% of students currently at Michigan Tech are SYP alumni!
To register your group or department: fill out this registration form no later than Friday, July 13th.  More information will come the following week.
