Engineering Expo is an event hosted by the College of Engineering, showcasing various student organizations and engineering companies on the engineering campus. Wisconsin Robotics has now, for two years in a row, won the award for 'Best Student Organization'. Usually hosted in the later half of the academic year's second semester, we use Expo as a great opportunity to show off our latest work.

The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, IL hosts a yearly event called the Robot Block Party. Various robotic-based student organizations are invited to attend. Wisconsin Robotics has attended for the past two years, bringing our robots and demonstrating them to the public.
Maker Faire Milwaukee
Maker Faire Milwaukee is an annually held event, open to the Milwaukee public. Various exhibitors, known as "makers", are invited to show off their work. Wisconsin Robotics attended and was able to demonstrate our current projects to the public.
In addition to our larger events, Wisconsin Robotics regularly hosts smaller groups of K-12 students. We demonstrate our projects while also answering questions about the various fields of STEM, hoping to inspire younger students in the same way many of our members were when they were younger.
