Experience the Tradition
Stop by an information booth in College Center or Technology Center for a map and schedule of events.
Navigate the skies
See what it’s like to take K-State’s planes for a spin without leaving the ground. K-State’s flight instructors will be on hand to show you the ropes.
Melts in your Mouth!
Tell the dispenser how many chocolate-coated candies you want - and what color - and it will do the rest!
The Need for Speed
How fast is your fastball? Use a speed gun to find out.
Check out different types of aircraft
Kick the tires and take your picture with K-State’s fleet.
Get a personalized keychain and see how 3-D printers are used to create custom parts and tools.
Some robots dance. Some robots fight. We have both kinds.
Whether they are custom-made or put together from a kit, rockets are awesome. Build your own out of a plastic bottle and see how far it can go!
Chemistry students make strange noises and awesome sights (with the help of some chemical reactions in test tubes)!
Fold Your Wings
Discover the forces of flight as you build a paper airplane perform flight testing.
Whatever Floats Your Boat
Build your boat, then load it with candy to see how much it can hold and still float. The candy is yours to keep!
Student Project Fair
Check out class projects in robotics, automation, and electronics. There’s even an art exhibit!
Ask an Agent
Extension Agents will be on hand to provide resources and answer questions about your lawn, crops, livestock, health, home, or family.
Campus and Residence Hall Tours
Take an official campus tour, and check out everything from classrooms and labs to student hangouts. Meet current students, and stop by the residence halls to find out what student living is all about.
