Curious students, from grade schoolers to high schoolers, packed Loomis Laboratory to learn about a variety of chemical engineering applications as part of the 97th Engineering Open House. They learned about everything from cyclone separators to homemade chapstick and they sampled the always popular liquid nitrogen ice cream.
Engineering Open House was held March 10-11, with over 250 exhibits and several design competitions. Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering students demonstrated a number of exhibits for visitors to Loomis Lab. The theme for this year’s Engineering Open House is Illuminate New Horizons.
Congratulations to ChBE students involved in winning exhibits: “Oil Spills and Ferrofluidity,” which won third place in the Go Green (Sustainability) category; “Edible Liquids & Photolithography,” which won third place in the Best Freshman Exhibit; and “Illuminate Your Mind,” which one third place in the Illuminate New Horizons presented by ExxonMobil category.
