WiSE EXPO - information and sign up
What is the WiSE EXPO all about?
Texas State University's WiSE Conference is scheduled for Friday, March 2, 2018. In addition to participants from Texas State, we are inviting regional colleges and high schools in order to promote Texas State's undergraduate and graduate STEM programs.
One of the highlights of our conference is the WiSE EXPO, which will showcase science and engineering student groups and their activities/interests.
We are actively seeking STEM student organization participation in the conference and invite you to develop and present a hands-on activity or engaging demonstration for conference attendees. Activities should be geared toward participant inclusion and participation. This is your organization’s opportunity to showcase and share a particularly interesting facet of your field with the conference community!
How can my student organization participate?
The EXPO will be held in the afternoon on the day of the conference (Friday, 3/2) in the LBJ Student Center. EXPO time will be posted once the agenda is final.
Each club will have a 6-foot table reserved for your group's interactive, hands-on science or engineering activity that can be shared with conference attendees. In addition, we ask that you display a poster with the name of your organization and institution. It can include (but not required) pictures, stories, and fun information about your club, and it automatically enters your group to be eligible for the People's Choice Award!
Your club will have the chance to win People’s Choice Cash Awards!
WiSE has limited support available to help you purchase materials for your interactive project. Requests for funds are limited to $50 (on a reimbursement basis) and are available on a first come, first served basis.
