Mr Wills estimates that, on Engineer's Day, CURENT provided tours to around 40 high school students with about half of these expressing a high level of interest in EECS. The CURENT booth saw good turnout as indicated by the number of flyers picked up.

Also, to finish off the day, Erin Wills and his crew also had an engineering night at Green Elementary with mostly 1st year grad students where about 200 people attended.
