The funding from the Construction Specification Institute allowed the latest STEM Cubs event to double in size, from 60 kids total to 120, and ensured that they were provided with food and materials for the various activities, including building ramps, 3D printing, constructing string telephones and more.
The inaugural event was organized by multiple students affiliated with the MU College of Engineering’s various diversity organizations and its Office of Diversity and Outreach Initiatives.
Careers, internships or brushing up on skills for the future — no matter which they sought, MU Engineering students found these opportunities in abundance at the Fall 2017 Career Fair.
The machine shop has a wide array of tools, machines and services available to students and faculty for various projects. For students working on academic projects, these are available free of charge, while a modest fee might apply to faculty.
The first edition of the STEM Cubs Summer Camp took place on July 8 at the University of Missouri. Participants had the opportunity to work on engaging hands-on activities, including designing a skateboard ramp, building string phones and developing methods to help small animals safely cross the street.
The students — many from Missouri but some from as far away as Washington — heard presentations from each of the College’s departments and worked on hands-on projects designed to give students a taste of what each discipline specializes in.

More than 200 employers will be available providing the nearly 2,000 students in attendance with opportunities to meet recruiters from top engineering companies throughout the U.S. Get more information about […]
Dozens of students descended upon Lafferre Hall on March 11 for High School Day, hosted by Mizzou Engineering Student Council (MESC). The event gives high school students from around the state an up-close-and-personal look at life inside Mizzou Engineering in a way few tours can match.
National conventions are key opportunities for networking, visibility, student recruitment and more for engineering student organizations. The Mizzou chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) not only maximized those opportunities, but had two members elected to prestigious regional posts at this year’s NSBE Annual Convention from March 29 to April 2 in Kansas City, Mo.
A total of 824 students and 135 companies participated in the event, which provides a great opportunity for Mizzou Engineering students to showcase their abilities to eager industry partners.
