Future Engineers Day is a daylong event for students in grades 7-11 to learn about engineering through hands-on activities led and taught by current UT students. Co-hosted by the National Society of Black Engineers UT Chapter and the Cockrell School of Engineering's Broadening Participation in Engineering Office and held on the UT Austin campus, Future Engineers Day aims to promote engineering where it hasn't been promoted before in a way that allows participants to begin to see themselves as members of the Cockrell School Engineering community.

The event is geared toward students in the greater Austin area in grades 7-11 who are interested in the field of engineering. We want students to start thinking about their futures now and show prospective students that they have a supporting community within the Cockrell School. Everyone is welcome to attend. Activities include a panel of current UT students, a scavenger hunt and hands-on experiments and activities.
