Your sponsorship will enable us to offer free attendance for those students and you will be recognized as the benefactor of those attending on scholarship.
All booths are responsible for providing a quick engineering game or activity that will last 5-7 minutes while the students are at the booth. Booths are also encouraged to have advertising/marketing "swag" materials as well. The activity should be engineering-related and be able to be performed individually or in pairs.
Please note that KSU prohibits the use of balloons in their event facility, and any activities that require chemicals or flame must be pre-approved. You can arrive at 7:15 am on the day of the event to set up your booth. Booths must be set up by 8:30 am.
