EYH 2018 Workshop List
This is last year's workshop list (2018). 2019 workshops have not yet been announced.
Biology and Health (3 workshops)
Bio Beetle Lab
Estimate the size of a beetle population using a mark-release-recapture technique.
How to Mend a Broken Heart
The scientists and engineers at Medtronic make all different types of devices that go inside the body to repair your heart and arteries – from heart values to stent grafts to balloons. Come to learn about the variety of devices we make, how we design and test them, and get to try them out yourself – and learn more about what working as a scientist or engineer is really like.
Nursing Jeopardy And Wheel Of Fortune
Be a game show contestant and test your knowledge of what nurses need to know.
Chemistry (2 workshops)
Powdered Nutella? Bubbles of juice? Learn all about chemistry in the kitchen, and eating food the whole time.
Chemists Have Solutions
The principles of paper chromatography and design of experiment will be demonstrated. You will separate the mixture of dyes in a magic marker into separate pigments and determine the separation effectiveness using different paper sources.
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (2 workshops)
Computer Science with MATLAB
Take an introductory course in computer science and create a tic-tac-toe game in MATLAB.
Students will learn and demonstrate conversion of electrical energy to mechanical energy. Each team will build an electric motor and explore applications from fans to cars.
Environmental Science and Engineering (3 workshops)
In this kit, students will build their own weather station. As do meteorologists, students will be able to measure rainfall, wind speed, wind direction and temperature. As the keep track of the results they record, students can begin to see pattern changes and, over time they will more fully understand their ever changing weather.
What Will You Drive in 2020?
Upcoming alternative fuel transportation
The earth has many sources of energy. From renewable sources like the sun and the wind ... to non-renewable ones like coal and oil, the earth provides for our need of energy to warm our homes, power our factories, and keep our cars moving. In the solar energy unit students will create their own solar powered car and observe the use of the sun's energy to power a vehicle. Indoors or outdoors, this project is sure to excite the student and give them a sense of wonder and pride.
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 Fly
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.
