Zone 3 | Engineering Center G-wing, south patio

Flume Lab tour & demo
4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Come and explore Professor Kelin Whipple's "Flume Lab" and watch how water and sediment shape the Earth's surface

Zone 4 | Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building - ISTB 4 Room 135

Magic Planet exhibit
Gallery of Scientific Exploration
4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The first floor invites visitors to explore earth and space sciences through digital media, public lectures, visible laboratories, and interactive displays. A focal point of the building is a state-of-the-art theater, as well as an expansive exhibit hall dedicated to interactive exhibits. The focus of the first floor spaces is on dynamic experiences to invite participatory exploration. The exhibits are as much about communicating how earth and space scientists do science and achieve a scientific worldview as they are about scientific facts and figures.

Geotechnical Engineering
4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

What happens during an earthquake? Come into the geotechnical engineering lab and find out using a building model, sandbox and a vibrating pad.

You can also help build a "mechanically stabilized earth" wall. When done correctly (under our supervision, of course!), adults will be able to stand on these walls without collapsing.

Germ Junction–A closer look into the world of microbes and an appreciation of their lifestyle
4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

An interesting display of different bacterial colonies with diverse lifestyles and ubiquitous natures. See it all under the microscope! Bacteria are EVERYWHERE.....

Girls have IT
Girls have IT Day
4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Girls Have IT Day is an event to encourage middle school girls in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM)! Come learn more about STEAM from "near-peer" high school mentors. We will have hands on activities and lots of fun!

Glow-in-the-dark-BIRDS!!
4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Birds look different to each other than they do to us. They see ultraviolet light and their feathers often reflect this light, to create colors that are invisible to humans. Come see our demonstration explaining how our feathered friends communicate secretly in color!

Go LoCo and be a Radio Detective! ISTB 4
4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Professor Judd Bowman and the Low-frequency Cosmology Group (LoCo Lab) invite you to search and discover Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and Radio Astronomy!

Goryll Lab
4:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Our lab demonstrates that it is possible to combine biogenic materials, such as our nanopore membranes with semiconductor devices, using industry-standard microfabrication methods. This opens up the possibility to use bottom-up biogenic structures wherever "classic" top-down manufacturing proves to be too costly, too slow or not sustainable when it comes to resource consumption. The integration can be performed using well-established materials and techniques in micro-machining, making it attractive for industrial manufacturing.
