At Engineering for Communities, visitors were able to take part in hands-on experiments, workshops, and demonstrations. Each activity explored engineering solutions to different community needs such as bridge building, sustainable housing, medical devices, water treatment and electricity. There were puppets, lego-build areas, and a great display of antique engineering equipment.  Other highlights included a K’Nex Bridge Building Contest, an Eco-House Design Challenge, and Electronic Circuitry and Wastewater Treatement Demonstrations.

Thanks to all of the volunteer students and Ryan Institute researchers from the College of Engineering and Informatics who put the whole event together and made it a great success.
