The Puget Sound Engineering Council (PSEC) Engineering Fair is held in conjunction with local chapters of engineering societies, colleges and businesses. The fair generally has about 25 display booths staffed by practicing engineers and technical people representing many types of engineering disciplines. It provides a fun, visible way for K-12 students to see and hear about the various types of engineering disciplines, encouraging them about engineering as a career.

The event is open to the public with the target audience being K-12 students and their parents. Museum admission is not required to enter the Fair, which is held in the Side Gallery at the Museum of Flight. However, admission is required for entry into the rest of the museum.

The Engineering Fair is an annual event held in conjunction with National Engineers Week. The Fair also features a hands-on design competition on site: The Popsicle Stick Bridge Load Competition sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers. For more information and pictures from past Fairs, visit the PSEC Engineering Fair web page.

The SMART Competition ( was developed for high school students to provide an academic, career and technology focus in STEM and CTE fields. The SMART Competition is a high school team-based educational program that provides a practical investigation of the smart grid, the use of sustainable materials in the redesign of a gymnasium on a virtual high school campus and power generation using renewable technology. The intelligent design problem uses a campus as a virtual modeling platform.

SMART is entering its fourth year. Last year we engaged students from around the world….from China, across North America, through Europe to Turkey.

Registration dateline Feb 3rd. May be extended to April 1st for Seattle area.
