Discover Engineers Week: February 17-21

Saturday, February 8th, 2014
Hello Engineering Ambassadors!
We are hosting a very exciting event from Feb 17th to the 21th: National Engineers Week! We will be presenting different hands-on activities each day in ITE, featuring many different disciplines of engineering. Hopefully we can help inspire current UConn students to pursue Engineering as a career, by showing them the cool stuff we can do. There’s a huge need for volunteers to help out, so please sign up for whenever you can using this google doc:
You WILL need training for these demos. They will happen after general body meetings on the next upcoming Thursdays (the 6th and the 13th), and during the course ENGR 3195 (Engineering for Impact) the next two Mondays from 5:00pm-8:00pm in UTEB 175.  If you will be coming to the Monday sessions, you will not have to stay the whole time of course, just as long as it takes to learn the activities. Please contact Kerry if you wish to attend a training session.
Some details of the demos we will be doing this year:
Monday, Material Science and Engineering: hydrophobic sand, shape memory alloys, oobleck (on a small scale, not the giant tank)
Tuesday, Mechanical Engineering: bicycle wheel gyroscope, smaller gyroscopes, weighted spinning, 3D Printer
Wednesday, Civil Engineering: Making structures out of graham crackers and frosting, candy etc.
Thursday, Electrical Engineering: Van de Graaff Generator, electric rollercoaster Friday, Hovercraft!!
