Open house offers engineering experience to local students

September 21, 2015  

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Local students will enjoy a taste of engineering during an upcoming Purdue University open house at Tippecanoe Public Library.

Innovation, Imagination, Discovery and Design (I2D2) will host the event beginning at 10 a.m. Oct. 3 at the Tippecanoe Public Library. I2D2 is an outreach program of Purdue's Women in Engineering.

During the event, students from kindergarten to eighth grade and their families can observe and explore open engineering exhibits.

In addition, families will have the chance to participate in hands-on activities — either at 11 a.m. or noon. Students from Women In Engineering will help with the activities, which explore engineering concepts.

The event is free, and no pre-registration is necessary. Children must be under parental supervision during the open house.

The open house is one of two hosted each year by I2D2, which works to introduce young students in the community to engineering through hands-on activities brought to schools by Purdue engineering students.
