EYH 2020 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.
Be a game show contestant and test your knowledge of what nurses need to know.
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.
Computer Science (2 workshops)
Learn how to develop create beautiful and powerful mobile gaming apps. No prior programming experience is required. Must have a gmail address to sign in to the program we will use. (School emails will work, if they are through the Google Suite.)
Introduction to Programming with MATLAB
First, we'll take you on a quick tour of the MATLAB programming environment, and teach you some basic commands and how to draw a graph. Then you'll use MATLAB to play tic-tac-toe. Play against the computer (you choose the level of difficulty) or against a friend. Finally, you'll have fun creating your own Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the game.
Electrical Engineering (2 workshops)
Students will build their own praxinoscope and enjoy the fascination that comes with creating the illusion of moving pictures. Already made animation sequences are included in the kit as well as instructions for students to create their own animated movie.
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)
What Will You Drive in 2020?
Learn about Upcoming Alternative Fuel Transportation.
Can you create electricity with wind? Work in teams to design and construct wind blades to spin a turbine and find out what it takes to create some power!
Math and Money (1 workshop)
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.
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.
