College of Education
Experience education through the ages
Different clubs and organizations will be on hand to show what the College of Education has to offer future and current students. Meet with our all-star advisors regarding program and scholarship opportunities.
Family train ride
Join our Education Ambassadors for a ride on the Little Apple Train. During your ride, learn the history of the College of Education as well as how you can leave your mark as an education major.
History comes to still life as “wax figures” are rendered motionless until a participant “steps on their button,” and they come to life and speak.
Tell us your story
The K-State Council for Exceptional Children group will be collecting stories about your most memorable teacher or student. Tell us what made him or her special and share how he or she has affected your life.
Make and take your own work of art at the Imagination Station. Also, meet current members of the Kansas Art Education Association.
Technology of the past, present and future
See how much technology has changed by viewing artifacts and images of technology through the years. Take a moment to imagine and draw what you think technology might look like in the future. Participants’ drawings will be showcased throughout the day in the “Tech of the Future” gallery.
Swing by the main lobby of Bluemont Hall for a chance to “mess around” in science while learning about exciting opportunities in the field of science education. Visitors will be able to hold a cloud and launch ice at the Science Exploration Station.
Up for the challenge?
Join us for a game of education-style Twister or Jeopardy! for a chance to win delicious prizes. Learn how Kansas National Education Association-Student Program serves as a great way to connect with fellow future teachers and to network with the profession’s finest across the state.
Stop by the Kappa Delta Pi digital photo booth to get your picture taken with a historic leader in education or to see what you might look like as a future K-Stater. Share your email with us and get your personal image sent to you electronically.
Join our newest student organization, the Multicultural Student in Education, for free popcorn, cotton candy and conversation.
Experience a one-room schoolhouse
Sit at the desk of a one-room schoolhouse, read from a reader used by students and imagine what you would put in a lunch bucket 150 years ago. Take a stroll back in time.
What’s the buzz?
Imagine yourself as a pollinator as you experience the scent, colors and forms of flowers. “Buzz” on over to explore different types of pollen under a microscope and discover the important role of pollinators in the life of plants.
Listen for the sound of fireworks outside the College of Education. Join us in the Holen Courtyard as we launch screaming rocket balloons. Bend ‘em, spiral ‘em as we explore physics concepts.
