Elementary IDEAS

The Purdue Engineering Student Council is once again hosting IDEAS, a free interactive engineering day for elementary school students! IDEAS participants will get to take part in various hands-on, fun activities that introduce students to engineering concepts and show them what it's like to be an engineer. IDEAS takes place during the Fall on Purdue University's West Lafayette campus and in the spring. Additionally, IDEAS is sponsored on the road at a partnering elementary schools in the West Lafayette area and still requires online registration through PESC.

This program is designed to encourage elementary school aged students to pursue a career in science and engineering disciplines through fun, hands-on activities guided by engineering students. Parents are welcome at the event as well.

This program is free of charge and all participants will receive lunch. PESC requires that students provide their own transportation to and from the event, whether at the partnering school or at Purdue University for the fall IDEAS event.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, or would like to partner with PESC for future student events, feel free to contact the Engineering Outreach Committee at
