Fall 2021 Update

KAWSE takes health and safety very seriously. While we plan to return to in-person programming in August 2021, 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 or calling 785-532-6088. 


EXCITE, or Exploring Science, Technology, and Engineering, 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 STEM. We offer semester events and a 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.
