Kids love to investigate the world around them and the Gallogly College of Engineering knows that engineering is one of the best ways to foster ingenuity and innovation. Therefore, the Gallogly College of Engineering has created the Engineering Experiences program. Our Engineering Experiences offer hands-on learning in a dynamic environment that gets students excited about learning, while supporting classroom instruction.
Plan an Engineering Experience for Your Students
Who Can Attend?
Our programs are created for pre-K to grade 12 students and are available for class groups, homeschool groups, and community groups. Groups can have a maximum of 60 students.
Engineering Experiences are free for student groups.
90 minute to half-day experiences are available from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The more time that you have, the more fun elements that can be scheduled for your Engineering Experience.
You can schedule your specific date through the visitor center. Please allow at least two weeks' notice when planning your event as availability is subject to the OU academic calendar.
What Can I Expect?
Your students will interact with OU Engineering students and staff in hands-on activities and experiments. They will also have opportunities to meet members of competitive engineering teams and student organizations. Finally, your students will receive a tour of the college, including our engineering practice facility, with a brief information session on the College of Engineering.

Engineering Experiences are arranged through the OU Visitor Center.
