SUGAR Expo 2016


The SUGAR Expo 2016 is Wednesday, June 1st. Register to attend now!

The event is free and open to the public.

The SUGAR Network invites you to join us as we celebrate our students' creative work in design research, design practice, engineering, and manufacturing.

The SUGAR Expo is a unique, once-a-year opportunity to meet with students, faculty and industry colleagues. This event precedes the Stanford Design EXPErience, so you may experience two days back-to-back of unparalleled access to experience student work, witness cutting-edge prototypes, and see ideas from outside your usual sphere.
