Free and open to the public

The Edison Lecture Series is an opportunity for middle and high school students to experience the exciting applications of electrical and computer engineering. Students experience a university-style lecture on campus. An interactive exhibit hall demonstrates how much fun electrical and computer engineering can be. Over 26,000 Central Texas students have enjoyed this event since 2005. Be part of the excitement.

This year's theme is "Fiber and Light." Light runs the world, and attendees will learn all about how we engineer this light, from fiber optics to lightbulbs and how light is revolutionizing network communication, medicine, and games.

Call for Exhibits
Student clubs/groups and industry groups are invited to be part of the exhibit hall on February 21 and 22. 

We are looking for interactive, hands-on activities or demos that illustrate electrical and computer engineering concepts, with emphasis on the fun over the fundamentals. Solar cars and Robotics Teams are always a big hit. This year, demos involving fiber optics and light are encouraged.

Exhibit spaces will be given out first-come, first served, as space is limited. To sign up for a space in the exhibit hall, contact Theresa Claiborne (512-232-7916 | tc@austin.utexas.edu).
