Events for mechanical engineering?

Are there any big events having to do with mechanical engineering that I could possibly look into, I would prefer something more hands-on?

I am not familiar with ones that only pertain to mechanical engineering, but there are shows and events for manufacturing, prototyping, medical device, consumer electronics, CAD and more. You can do searches for tradeshows (medical device, manufacturing , CES), American society of mechanical engineeering, SolidWorks, Creo are some key words. There are many of these in the Bay Area.

Hi Aaron! I would highly recommend looking into your schools resources and activities. Reach out to your engineering department and or look at the clubs you may have on campus and try to participate in any events that they may be having. Good luck, hope this helped!

From my experience, Maker Faire or Mini-makers faires have been a great place to talk with professional engineers/scientists and usually have plenty of hands-on activities or events. Definitely not strictly for mechanical engineering but I think it's great to learn from other fields that mechanical engineers work with in the professional world. Also, most companies I have worked for have done career days or events where they brought in local orgs like Boys and Girls club or a high school group and done hands on activities to show younger folks the kind of work ME's actually do.
