Can you envision a future of net-zero-energy about architectural engineers and their unique expertise in both engineering and architecture? Try your hand at being the master builder of the future by applying alternative energy solutions for a mini design project!
Architecture and Art
Explore the principles of composition and learn lessons from master artists and designers. You will explore spatial ideas by four dimensional images into a two-dimensional space.
Architecture and Design
Would you like to make a structure that can support 600 times its own weight? See real buildings supported by cardboard tubes and why a structural design fails when 3 to 8 bricks crush and smash it.
Audio Engineering Technology, Construction Management, Engineering Technology
Combining creativity with mathematics and science, engineers find innovative solutions to society’s problems, create products that benefit mankind, and design processes that ultimately change the way we live. Explore three very different engineering disciplines. Learn how audio engineers help to bring arts and entertainment – even science – to life. Discover the crucial role construction managers play in the overall building process. And talk with seasoned engineering technologists about how they put their ideas to work.
Discover how the biological sciences have revolutionized our world, propelling advances in medicine, veterinary science, agriculture, wildlife conservation, education, and many other areas.
Fix a torn ligament like the ACL in your knee by applying new orthopedic devices, materials, tools, and technology that were developed by Biomedical Engineers working closely with doctors to improve medical treatments.
The best way to learn business is to run one! This is your chance to get some of that experience. You will have 50 minutes and a toolbox of materials to launch a brand new business. At the end of the session, the businesses will compete for prizes!
Take a tour of Lawrence Tech's campus. You will have the opportunity to hear first hand experiences from a current student to learn what it is really like to be a Blue Devil.

Interior designers respond to a variety of human factors to design meaningful indoor spaces. Generate a design concept for an interior that includes selection of materials, color, furniture, and decorative objects.
Industrial and Transportation Design
Do you have a passion for drawing and an ability to generate ideas to improve products? Do you have what it takes to make cars or products more cool or futuristic? Find out how design and engineering are integrated to create the most exciting new vehicles and how you can find a place in this dynamic, competitive field. In this program, you’ll have the opportunity to design new vehicle concepts, products, apparel, and graphics, and create animation videos.
Mathematics holds the key to understanding and managing, if not actually controlling, the world around us. Learn how mathematics impacts almost every aspect of modern life, from personal finances to the stock market, from computer bits and bytes to global information networks. Mathematicians answer questions, solve problems, and manage uncertainty – you can too!
Ever wonder how you get electricity from wind? How cars can be made more energy efficient? How an airplane can lift five times its own weight? Explore these questions, see student-designed race cars, and find out how energy systems, machine design, fluid dynamics, materials design, metallurgy, and other disciplines work together to make the world a better place.
Media communication professionals work in a wide array of careers, including television, film, and video production. Students will work in two teams to write, produce, and anchor a real news broadcast.
The exploration of the principles that govern the universe has led to many of the modern world’s great inventions. Have fun with some these physical principles and learn about career opportunities in this exciting field.
