On Friday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the Gross Memorial Coliseum at Fort Hays State University will play host to the 63rd annual Western Kansas Technology Education Fair.
The fair provides an opportunity for junior high and high school students from across the state who are enrolled in technology education classes to showcase the projects they have been working on throughout the school year.
Open to all, the Colosseum features a variety of projects, including wood and metal furnishings, CAD drawings, and draughts.
There will be an awards ceremony around 3:30 pm, with doors opening at 8 a.m. for the general public.
An individual ribbon or medal is bestowed upon each participant. Throughout the day, prizes are given to the winners of various live competitions, including communication, the metric 500 race, the tech challenge (quiz bowl), and problem solving.
The fair is run entirely by the Technology and Engineering Education Collegiate Association (TEECA) of Fort Hays State University.
