  • Booth Signups for the 2019 Engineers Fair are Open

    It is that time of year again to start preparing for the 2019 PSEC Engineering Fair. This year’s Fair will be on Saturday, February 9th from 10am to 4pm at the Museum of Flight. We will be in the same spot as always, and booth prices will be the same as past years.

    I encourage everyone to sign up early so we can plan our space and make sure everyone gets the booth location they want.

    One item to note: if you are going to pay by check or other means, or you are a student group, you will select the Pay By Check or “Special Arrangement” option. Do NOT select any other tabs. If you select any of the other options at the same time, it will prompt you for a credit card. Only select the final option in that case.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!  Please do not hesitate to email me at if you have any questions.
