Spectrum 2016 features engineering and scientific innovations showcased through interactive exhibits, workshops, keynote speakers and demonstrations. It is an historic event for the U of S College of Engineering, first held in 1930 as "The Engineering Show" and is fully organized by engineering students. It only comes around once every three years and has grown into an exhibition of engineering and science that welcomes close to 10,000 people to the college.

A few highlights of Cameco Spectrum 2016: Beakerhead, a smash-up of art, science and engineering; Jay Ingram on the fascination of space exploration; Kilobots, a combat robot tournament; and the opportunity to operate the University of Saskatchewan Space Design Team's 2015 international-award winning Mars rover.
