Engineering can be child’s play for those lucky enough to participate in a “Passport to UH” event hosted by the Cullen College’s subsea engineering program.

On May 18, youngsters from the Lamar Independent School District’s 5th grade classes gathered at UH to learn about the university and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses.

They toured the university commons, library and football stadium. Then they returned to the engineering commons and conducted experiments with Cullen College students.
