LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 13, 2004) -- The University of Kentucky College of Engineering will hold its annual Engineers Day open house from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, 2004, featuring contests to spur the creativity and imaginations of young people.

Among the events are an egg-drop crash survivability contest, with participants inventing containers to protect eggs from 20-foot falls; an edible-car contest to build small cars with food items; an index-card bridge contest; and the popular “Rube Goldberg” contest, where participants will invent elaborate, silly ways to sink a one-foot putt.

The day also features tours of College of Engineering laboratories and demonstrations of student projects.

More information about Engineering Day events is available online.
