Examples of previous year's workshops:
Don't Break the Law! - Material Engineers, Meghan Baronowski and Danielle Ramos, showed an example of a fluid that defies Isaac Newton's law of viscosity. Participants will get to play with some ooey, gooey, glop...or is it?!
Will Pooh Go "SPLAT"? - Mechanical Engineer, Elsa Hennings and Aerospace Engineer, Alyse Dannenberg, led a workshop involving designing a harness for a large stuffed animal, attaching it to a parachute, and making predictions where it will land, then testing those predictions.
*PLEASE NOTE: EYH Workshops are 75 minutes in length. the Workshop Presenter Booklet has some examples that are differing lengths. Please design your workshop to be 75 minutes using the general guidelines outlined in the Booklet.
