On May 25th, 2017, Chico State SWE hosted over 220 participants at our 5th annual K-8 STEM outreach event, Imagineer Day! This award-winning, annual event brings the engineering career path to the attention of local children ranging from grades K-8. Every participant had the opportunity to experience fun, hands-on engineering activities, all the while learning how and why the things in this world work the way they do. This year also marked the first year that we expanded to our 7th-8th graders in a robotics lab, which accompanied the other K-6th grade labs that featured engineering disciplines such as Concrete, Civil/Structural, Mechanical, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, all inspired by the Disney movie "Finding Dory"!
