Bring the Kids: U of WA Engineering Open House This Weekend

Geek Culture

Talk about a way to get your kids interested in science and engineering (or feed their already GeekDad-inspired love of the subjects): the University of Washington’s School of Engineering is holding a major open house event this weekend, with talks and demonstrations on a whole swath of fascinating topics, geared for all different age and interest groups.  For example, just in the Aeronautics and Astronautics departments, you’ll be able to see:

  • The Helicity Injected Torus Experiment
  • Flight Simulator
  • Spacecraft Formation Flying
  • Coordinated fish robots
  • Water Rockets
  • Aeronautics and Astronautics Senior Space Design: Lunar South Pole Exploration and Reconnaissance
  • Zap Flow Z-Pinch Plasma Experiment
  • Ram Accelerator Direct Space Launcher

So if you’re in the greater Seattle area this weekend, it definitely looks to be the place for GeekDads and families to go.
