Welcome to the EXCITE Program at K-State

2021-2022 Update

KAWSE takes health and safety very seriously. While EXCITE is hosting events in-person this year, we will continue to monitor the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and will follow all guidance from the university, KDHE and CDC. KAWSE staff can be reached Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM by emailing kawse@k-state.edu, calling 785-532-6088, or stopping by our physical office located at 1011 Seaton Hall. 

Exploring Science, Technology, and Engineering (EXCITE) is designed to encourage and support students of all genders in the 9th - 12th grades to pursue a future in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and agriculture. The goal of the program is to foster girls' continuing interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. We offer semester events and a 3 day, 2 night summer workshop on the main K-State campus in Manhattan KS for high school students. All events offer hands-on activities that focus on how scientists and engineers help make the world a better place.

Information about our events and programs, including how to register, can be found on our Events page. 

If you would like to receive email updates on programs and events, including our monthly newsletter, please contact us at kawse@k-state.edu.
