When You Arrive For Engineering Saturday

Once you arrive at the Engineering Saturday event you will find schedules posted around Nedderman Hall atrium which list the presentations/sessions available for each age group in each time block. Some of these presentations will have limited seating based on the type of activity being done.

You, the student, decide on your top choices for the next time block coming up, either the 9:00am session, the 10:45am session, or the 1:30pm session. You only sign up for one session at a time not for later sessions.

At 10 minutes before the time block begins, sign up sheets will be posted for the next round of sessions. Students will simply line up to sign the sheet for their top choice of session. If that one is full, then students can try their second or third choices. After you, the student, are signed up, you then go to the classroom of the session you signed up for. At the end of that session, we will do the same for the next round.

Rules

• Students may only sign up for ONE session for the UPCOMING time block.

• Students may only to sign up for themselves and no one else.

• Students may not hold places in line for anyone else.

• Adults are asked not to stand in any of the lines while the students are waiting to sign up for the next session.

• If you, the student or your parent or responsible adult, does not follow these rules while signing up for a session, your name will be taken off the list you signed and you will have to go to the back of the line or another line to sign up.

Notes for responsible adults with students:

Children under 18 months must be accompanied by responsible adult at all times.

Adults are welcome to attend sessions with students when space is available. Activities in the session may be limited only to students due to limits on materials but adults may observe and give positive input in most cases.
