SEEDS: ENGINEERING OUTREACH

About the Science Engineering Educational Development for Students (SEEDS) program


SEEDS is a program for K-12 students offered through the College of Engineering at Wichita State University. The objective of SEEDS is to promote science, technology, engineering, and math skills so that young people will be familiar with the career options that exist in engineering.

Our marquee program is Switched on Saturdays, where  4th through 8th grade students can experience how much fun problem-solving can be. A variety of events are held through out the academic year. .

Most sessions are held on the Wichita State University campus. In order to serve children who may find it difficult to get here, we will occasionally host events in neighborhood centers around Wichita and we frequently participate in-school and afterschool programs.  

Our SEEDS staff's primary purpose is to serve as role models. We believe children will be inspired by the personal stories of the WSU students, who come from diverse backgrounds and include first-generation college students.  

All SEEDS activities are free to the participants. We invite you to take advantage of this great opportunity to introduce children to the excitement of solving problems through our fun hands-on engineering activities, hosted by our friendly and inspiring WSU engineering students.
