ORONO, Maine (NEWS CENTER)--The University of Maine has been hosting the Engineering Expo for the last 12 years. This time the event was in Orono and there were more than 50 exhibits on display to wow curious on-lookers.
Officials with the university say there is a shortage of engineers in Maine and the university is looking to stir people's interest. They say the expo is meant to get kids excited about science and engineering. Parents at the expo say the plan may be working.
Next year the expo will be at the University of Southern Maine.
