Have you ever realized just how much engineering plays a role in our world? Join us for Engineering Everywhere: An Engineers Week Celebration!

Beginning Feb. 17 and lasting through Feb. 24 (with a special sneak preview on Feb. 16, courtesy of Mazor Healthcare) the entire building will be filled with engineering activities.

Get hands-on with robots and meet the brilliant minds who built them. Experience innovative technology, like VR and augmented reality. Learn how to build your own creations using everyday household items. Find out how animals display engineering skills of their own!

Highlights

Feb. 17: Women in Engineering

Celebrate women in engineering as you check out displays from multiple robotics groups, including Exit 5 Robotics and the Livingston Robotics Club.

There are robots from FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge, World Robot Olympiad, and VEX Robotics. You’ll learn how some amazing women built their robots, and get the chance to take over the controls.

Plus, enjoy projection interactive displays, K'Nex sculptures, and more at this fun-filled kickoff to Engineers Week.

Feb. 18: Biomedical Engineering

Mazor Healthcare displays its Renaissance robot, which performs spinal surgeries. Talk to the experts behind this amazing feat of biomedical engineering.

Check out the new Anatomy 4D Lab in Infection Connection where augmented reality allows you to see life-like human anatomy and learn about the organ systems. Don’t miss a preview version of LSC’s flagship Live From Surgery program in Governors Hall.

Feb. 19: Civil Engineering & Robotics

Celebrate civil engineering and robotics with our partners from the American Society of Civil Engineers, FIRST Robotics, and Livingston Robotics Club.

Build a bridge, create a circuit, test a foil boat — we have table after table of hands-on activities all day. Livingston Robotics Club hosts several robotics teams, and you can drive robots built by students.

Feb. 20 – 21: Defense Engineering

Picatinny Arsenal highlights real-world engineering, including virtual reality experiences, a demonstration on power of gases and optics, and robots you can control.

Talk to the experts behind these technologies and learn how they’re used in the real world.

Feb. 22: LSC Engineering Day

In LSC’s original civil engineering design experience, you’ll build a bridge using household materials. Get a budget and schedule for the project, then build a sturdy bridge as efficiently as possible. The best part: You get to take your bridge home!

Feb. 23: Animals & Engineering

Ever wonder how naked mole rats build their tunnels or leaf-cutter ants build their gardens? The animal kingdom is full of natural engineers!

Play a species-themed giant Jenga game. Look for engineering facts around the building explaining how animals use engineering in their everyday lives. Stop by the Eat and Be Eaten gallery where our animal experts will give quick talks about animal engineering.
