UC at Big Science Day this weekend

Looking for something fun to do with the family this weekend?  UC Engineering and Science will be participating in the Big Science Day this Saturday.

The event, run by Science Alive, is for anyone with an interest in science and technology, so bring the family out to see some of our cool toys!

We will be showcasing the amazing innovation that can be found at UC, including a rocket, electric go-kart, the Formula SAE car, robots and drones.  HITLabNZ will be there with their robots, and we will also be hosting an interactive chemistry show. The event is meant to inspire kids and highlight career paths in engineering and science.

Other displays include Martin Jetpack, Electric Vehicles and an opportunity to build your own water rocket. The event will be held in Cathedral Square from 10am – 4pm .

We look forward to seeing you there!
