Stories from the Game of Life: Engineering for fun and function

Sunday, July 21, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Let's face it. Every day seems to bring some new problem: life-threatening illness, an oil spill, hunger. Engineers look for solutions in the oddest places. They use wool from Willamette Valley sheep to clean up oil spills. They create Jello-O-like beads to deliver cancer therapy and replace spinal discs. They turn recycled plastics into building insulation. They solve personal transportation problems with the Segway scooter and the i-Bot stair-climbing wheelchair. Come find out what else engineers are doing! This family-friendly event is part of  OSU's da Vinci Days activities.
