Expo Event Schedule 2023

Expo Day Check-In Begins Promply at 8:30 AM March 29, 2023

The Expo start time is 8:30 AM. Be sure to register to attend before March 15, 2023 to help us with planning this large event.

There are three types of displays/exhibits:

  • Tour stops: each department will have stops that are part of the guided tour led by our UL student volunteers. Rougeou holds two of our six departments and Madison holds the other four.
  • Industry: with the exception of large equipment and a few others, all industry will be in one centralized outdoor location and are included in the tours.
  • Research: every department will showcase some of their exciting research as well.

All traffic will flow in one direction in hallways and stairwells.

See You on Wednesday!


  • Arrive at or after 8:30 AM and check in. More detailed instructions will be sent closer to the event.
  • School Absence Excuses are available by request.
  • High School Competition participants should register at the designated time. Registration times, competition rules, and competition times can be found here.


Tours include stops from all six of our departments, research, and industry. Maps and tour guides will be provided. Individual visitors can be part of groups or may walk around on their own.
