3D Printers

There are over 2 million people in America who have lost a limb. At our demo table, you'll learn how 3D printing is now a vital tool for making agile prosthetics custom fit to anyone, and its effective use in helping people in need.

(Dates: Feb. 19 – 23)

Coding

In this lab, you’ll learn the basics of binary code and how it works to make computers function. At the end, you’ll make a binary bracelet to take home with you!

(Dates: Feb. 19 – 23)

Egg Drop

Build a contraption using limited supplies to protect an egg thrown from a height of about 20 feet. Learn about engineering strength and see if your egg survives the fall or makes a big splat!

(Date: Feb. 19)

Duct Tape Mania

We’re bringing back this LSC classic for Engineering Everywhere! You have 15 minutes to test the strength of duct tape by strapping a family member to a wall – feet off the ground!

(Date: Feb. 20)

The Great Take Apart

Electronics are filled with gizmos of all kinds working together to make them function. Take apart old electronics and identify as many components as you can. Careful, though – you have to put them back together!

(Date: Feb. 21)
