Science and Innovation House Spring Events!

Spring Semester Has Arrived!

Four weeks into the Spring Semester, some of you are probably wondering, what events are happening at the Science and Innovation House LLC! Well, that's a great question, I'm glad you asked because boy do I have some cool updates for you :p

To start things off, Discovery World has sent back the completed DVD's that twelve of our LLC students took part in, including myself. We built some cool Lego Mindstorm Robots utilizing bio-mimicry, interviewed a professor and grad student, and to top it off, we made videos and audio podcasts of everything! Excited yet? You better be! So, were planning on getting everyone from the LLC together to watch this awesome video in two weeks on Sunday. Stay tuned for more details.

Watching the Olympics is pretty fun, but can you imagine participating in them? Well now you can. The Science and Innovation House LLC is planning on having a weekly Engineering Olympics Competition for a few weeks in March and April. What does this mean? Well, each week we will have a competition, say for example Tower Building or Egg Drop, and members of the LLC will pair up in teams and then will be given points based on how they do. Each week, more points will be added on to that team's total and then at the end, the team with the most points gets the Gold and so on so forth. This should be super fun!

Missed Discovery World? Don't worry, because we have a chance for you to build robots too! Very preliminary at the moment, but we are looking into finding mini-robot kits for students to build one weekend in April or early May.

That's all for now folks, enjoy the unusually warm weather and good luck on any exams!
