EYH 2019 Student Workshop List
Biology, Chemistry, and Health (3 workshops)
Chemists Have Solutions
The principles of paper chromatography and design of experiment will be demonstrated. You will separate the pigments in a magic marker to determine actual color blend as well as determine separation effectiveness using different paper sources and amounts of sample used.
Infectious Disease Lab
Students will learn about infectious diseases caused by viruses and bacteria. They will be amateur epidemiologists and track the transmission of a “virus” through a population... the classroom!
Be a game show contestant and test your knowledge of what nurses need to know.
Computer Science (2 workshops)
Computer Science with MATLAB
Take an introductory course in computer science and create a tic-tac-toe game in MATLAB.
Having Fun with Arduino
Learn what an Arduino is and how to program it to make lights blink, motors spin and other fun activities.
Electrical Engineering (3 workshops)
Build an Electric Motor
Learn about electric motors, how they work, and where they're used. Build and take home your own electric motor!
Light Up Your Art – Paper Circuits
Paper circuits are a great way of adding light to your drawings, origami, or papercraft creations! Instead of using wires to connect a battery to LEDs, paper circuits use conductive metal tape. In this workshop, we will build paper circuits and use them to light up our own artwork.
Steady Hand Game
This workshop is full of Electrifying Excitement!! Do you have nerves of steel? Test how steady your hand is and learn about electrical engineering at the same time. In this workshop, you will build an "electronic steady hand" game that demonstrates basic electrical concepts. The object of the game is to move a metal ring along a bare wire without touching the edges of the ring to the wire. If the ring touches the wire, a red light-emitting diode turns on, which indicates that the electrical circuit is closed. How far can you move the ring along the wire without triggering the light? All participants get to keep the game.
Geology and Environmental Science (2 workshops)
Sparkly Gems and Minerals
Learn about the building blocks of planet Earth by exploring shiny and colorful gems & minerals. Learn how to identify beautiful minerals, discover why some gems are valuable, and determine how we use minerals every day.
What Will You Drive in 2020?
Upcoming alternative fuel transportation
Math and Money (2 workshops)
Oh no, you’ve lost your phone! Do you have enough money to get a new one? Come to the "Money Matters” workshop to find out… Learn to take charge and make intelligent choices with your money.
Your Money; Save, Spend or Borrow?
We will save our money at a bank, or shop with the cash or use a credit card to buy items! Learning the short and long term effects on your financial future. What will these habits mean for you in 10, 20 or 30 more years?
Physics and Structural Engineering (3 workshops)
Let's Build a Paper Dome
Come join us to build your own gigantic dome with just newspaper and tape. This activity shows how you can combine geometry with simple and lightweight materials to build strong structures. What you'll learn can also apply to buildings, bridges, airplanes and towers.
Let's Go Flying
Discover the basics about flying!
Build, launch and retrieve two-stage Estes model rockets. Apply physics principles to predict the performance of your rocket and use mathematical models to analyze your data.
