future scientists and engineers participate in
than 600 future scientists and engineers from 22 high schools throughout
metro Detroit attended Technology Day on October 17. Hosted by UDM’s
College of Engineering & Science, Tech Day began with the annual
UDM Chemistry Magic Show, engineering displays and exhibits with
several corporate displays from companies such as Ford Motor Company,
DaimlerChrysler and Visteon.
This annual event aims to educate high school students about engineering
and science and how fun it can be. Many students have little understanding
as to what a mechanical engineer or a chemist does. Through Tech
Day, participating students gain a stronger interest in the engineering
and science curricula as they realize science is more exciting than
many people think.
