High school students - this is for you! Make plans to attend Colorado State's Engineering Exploration Day. Visit engineering labs, see project demos, visit with engineering faculty members, and learn about undergraduate study and life at CSU. It's free and open to the public.

On Engineering Exploration Day, high school students can learn about life as an undergraduate engineering student at Colorado State.Saturday, Feb. 5

Imagine an urban search-and-rescue robot designed to locate and identify humans trapped in disaster areas. Colorado State senior capstone students in mechanical engineering designed the robot Good Samaritan to detect victims and transmit information to rescue crews.
Imagine working with other students to develop a new space tether that will be used to create safer space missions in the future.

Real solutions for real problems

These are just a couple of the design projects that teams of students at Colorado State University have developed. Would you like to be a part of such a team, thinking of ways to improve technology and the quality of people's lives?

If your answer is "Yes!" then you will want to check out Engineering Exploration Days at Colorado State next Saturday, Feb. 5 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
