Engineering Olympics

Engineering Olympics is an annual event hosted at Michigan Technological University for high school students across the UP. Students work on projects throughout the school year, including trebuchets and mousetrap-powered vehicles, using physics and engineering principles they've learned in school. In the spring, they come together on campus for a friendly competition in each event, led by faculty members and supported by college-student volunteers.

The event provides a fantastic opportunity for high school students to experience a day on campus while exercising their engineering skills. Engineering Olympics is powered by the Department of Engineering Fundamentals, the College of Engineering, and by our team in the Center for Pre-College Outreach.

More details will follow, however please see our flyer from last year or download the booklet with past years' challenges. Those interested in registering for Engineering Olympics in the future can contact Lauren Kirwin ( at the Center for Pre-College Outreach.
