Each year during National Engineers Week, 6th graders from a middle school in Bozeman spend a day at MSU gleaning some engineering know-how from College of Engineering students by participating in hands-on engineering activities. Members of College of Engineering student organizations will explain engineering and computer science concepts behind activities such as making ice cream, working with a remote-controlled robot, designing buildings that can withstand an earthquake, constructing an oil pipeline, and building bridges.
Following are this year's events: Alaskan Oil Pipeline, Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream, Concrete Mixing, Spinning Volcano, K'nex Bridge Construction, Making S'mores with Computers, Demonstrating the effects of an Earthquake, Electricity from Pedaling a Bicycle, Water Filter Systems, LEGO Assembly Line, Crash Attenuator, Light Reflection, Catapults and Trebuchets!, Fun with Ooblec Samples and Bacteria-enriched Juice, How Super Absorbent Polymers Work, and LEGO LEED Building.
