Description:

Build It like a real engineer!

We’re kicking off a month of engineering explorations the only way we know how… with a blowout Super Science Saturday event! Enjoy a day spent discovering how engineers have impacted your everyday life through fun, hands-on activities and demonstrations. Included with the price of general admission.

Activities:

  • ENGINE ENGINEERING
    Have you ever ridden on a train? What about an off-road vehicle? Step up to see how these incredible four stroke engines, a.k.a. internal combustion engines, really work.
     
  • SOUNDS OF THE SEA
    Dive into a unique realm of engineering… one that’s completely submerged in water! Learn how engineers use robots to discover more about the animals that call life “under the sea” home.
     
  • WINDS OF CHANGE
    Are you ready for a breezy – maybe not so easy – challenge? Explore how wind turbines convert wind to energy while designing a wind farm of your own.
     
  • BINARY BITS
    Computers are everywhere these days – even in your pockets! Discover how computer hard drives store information as you learn how to write your name using binary code.
     
  • JUST FOR KICKS
    Did you know that engineering even plays a role in helping you score a goal or throw a touchdown? Engineers indeed help design sports equipment perfectly made for the sports you love. With this activity, you can engineer the perfect paper football and gain some insight into engineering for play!

Demonstrations (times TBA):

  • LIVING LIGHT!
    Do you know what light is? Have you heard of bioluminescence? In this exciting demonstration, we’ll open your eyes to the innovative ways scientists are using light to help solve problems.
     
  • MAGNETS TO MOTORS
    How do engineers use magnets to solve challenges? Come explore the physical properties of magnets and learn how electromagnets as you see some incredible magnets in action!
