Detroit’s future scientists and engineers participate in
Tech Day

The Impact, Fall 2003



More 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.
