This past weekend, March 9-10, was Engineering Open House on the UIUC campus. The student-run event features demonstrations and competitions all across the College of Engineering. Lots of middle and high school students from across the region come to visit. The Physics Department plays a big role in the event every year, and this year was no different. Adam writes about this year's event. Pictures below.
