Students, faculty and staff put their skills on display by building floats that cruise the routes of several local parades. You’ll see a Washburn Tech float in Washburn University’s annual homecoming parade. We also join the community for the annual Miracle on Kansas Avenue Parade, an event that kicks-off the holiday season in Topeka. In 2013, our float was overwhelmingly voted best entry!
Creating and building floats is a great way to connect. Students learn how to work with faculty members and one another. They also use their skills to support a community cause. Strengthening bonds with one another and the community is what activities like this are all about!
