Binghamton University to host annual Engineers Week

2016-01-27

BINGHAMTON, NY – The Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University will again host a full day of programming for budding engineers in celebration of National Engineers Week.

The events, which are free and open to students of all ages, will run from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, in the Engineering and Science Building at Binghamton University’s Innovative Technologies Complex (ITC), 85 Murray Hill Rd., Vestal.

This year, there will be several new hands-on activities, including hoop glider construction, building batteries with lemons, and building circuits from scratch.

Other events offer familiar challenges from the past: the 15-foot egg drop and building mini-catapults. Participants can also construct the sturdiest tower they can out of spaghetti and marshmallows, or create their own designs with LEGOs.

All individuals under the age of 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
