These engineers answered questions students had about their career. Some questions consisted of the types of projects they have done. Most engineers said that much of what they learned in college was applied to their work.
Many of these engineers talked about their firm more in depth and answered questions about various internships. Some engineers such as the one on the top left showed ten years worth of blueprints and interpreted it for them. Then engineers from Henderson told many students that the knowledge of autocad and other programs are strongly recommended when going for an internship
This Presentation was about what buoyancy is. This is an example of how buoyancy applies to these empty soda cans in the fish tank
Student showing spectators that the soda cans floated or sunk based on their buoyancy
Angular momentum project talking about the distance your arms are from the center determine how fast or slow you spin. This example on the left shows a student on a swivel changing his direction of motion with the rotating wheel he is holding
Students explaining and demonstrating how drag force affects a falling body based in its surface area. For example a Paper Vs. a rock.
This project is about magnetic fields and how they can shoot projectiles and make metals extremely hot. Mik demonstrates how the ring is repulsed by the field and how a magnetic field can shoot down targets
This project was about the Van de Graaf Electric generator which uses two bands that create large amounts of electricity, the students demonstrates how to discharge the generator, its not seen in the picture but there is electricity passing through.
Hector Demonstrates the reflection and refraction of light and how both angles being reflected are equal to each other
ECE students build and show off their project which is an assembly line made, programmed and motorized by Legos only
Snacks consisting of lemonade and cookies were present. Along with pepperoni and cheese pizza. Served by physics students
A physics tradition where students try to tear apart a phone book in a tug-o-war. This idea was of the phone book pull was inspired by Myth Busters
Students trying to pull the phonebook apart in a tug-o-war. approximately 30 students on each side trying to pull it apart
The Annual Tower contest, students are given a limited amount of paper and tape. They have to use these materials and build a tower than can with stand the most weight while staying stable. The group whose tower hold the most weight while still standing wins.
