Research Expo is an annual public event which features exhibits that illustrate the scope of engineering and the applied sciences — and their potential for improving the world. 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.
