Tandon Research Excellence Exhibit is an annual public event that features exhibits that illustrate the scope of engineering and the applied sciences — and their potential for improving the world. This year’s Exhibit will celebrate the incredible academic contributions of our community and the ways in which they connect to Tandon’s seven areas of research excellence. The most exciting work being done in labs and prototyping facilities comes alive for spectators of all ages. Child-friendly STEM projects developed for and by the students in NYU Tandon’s many K12 STEM Education programs offer the youngest attendees an introduction into the fascinating world of engineering and technology.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
