Sandbox Seminars

Join us for the Purdue ME Sandbox Seminars, where ME graduate students get 15 minutes to talk about their research.  No grades, no judgment -- just a forum to try out speaking in front of a group, and an opportunity for you to learn what your fellow students are up to.

All faculty, staff, and students are welcome! For more information, or to sign up for your own Sandbox Seminar, contact Luciano Castillo ( or Thomas Siegmund (
