What: Engineering Open House is an annual student-led event featuring two days of exciting exhibits and captivating competitions that showcase the talent and ingenuity of engineering students. This year, the 95th anniversary of the Open House, there are 250 exhibits put on by individual students, societies, and departments. They can be targeted for people of all ages and educations, displaying everything from basic science and engineering principles to current discoveries. Both interactive and informative, the comprehensive display of exhibits at EOH will be a fun learning experience for the whole family. All exhibits are free and open to the public. The visitor’s guide lists the age appropriateness of each exhibit and there are on-site design challenges that are fun for young children. You can also download the EOH App for an interactive experience. There will also be live musical entertainment over the lunch hour (11 a.m. – 2 p.m.) each day. The Tesla Coil concert on Friday night at 9 p.m. on the Barden Quad looks amazing! - See more at ChambanaMoms.
