   /EDIBLE CARS, WIND TURBINES, PASSIVE HELICOPTERS, ROOF TRUSSES, AND
BRIDGES!/

   The UVM College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences will host
Engineers Day Activities on _THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2010_ at the
Vermont Air National Guard (VANG) for elementary, middle and high
school students from 9:00 to  11:30 a.m.  Teams of students from
Vermont schools will exhibit EDIBLE CARS, WIND TURBINES, PASSIVE
HELICOPTERS, ROOF TRUSSES, AND PASTA BRIDGES. Certificate awards will
be presented at 11:30 a.m.

   To register a team and find the rules for events visit:
http://www.cems.uvm.edu/eweek/register.html
Note: Names of all attendees must be submitted together with school
participants (including names of bus drivers) for access to the
Vermont Air National Guard.
Schools are asked to provide an alphabetical list at VANG entrance --
for all students and teachers on buses.

   * The Edible Car sponsored by the Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
challenges elementary and middle school students to construct moving
cars from food; such as, cucumbers, hot dogs, ice cream cones,
pinwheel, pasta, cookies, etc. Cars must have at least two axles and
three wheels.
   * THE WIND TURBINE CHALLENGE asks middle and high school students
to build a wind turbine that can lift a 1 kg. weight and can fit into
a paper packing box (11"x 17.5" x 10"). Teams will be judged on the
time it takes to remove the wind turbine from the box, adjust it as
needed, and use it to raise a 1 kg. weight 1 meter.
   * Pasta Bridges sponsored by the American Society of Civil
Engineers (ASCE[1]) for middle and high school students, challenges
students to find out how bridges stay up. Bridges are made entirely
from pasta and hot glue and can weigh no more than 2500 grams.
   * The Hanger Roof Truss challenges middle and high school students
to design and build a model airplane hangar roof truss from wood.
Each truss will be evaluated for overall strength and efficiency.

   * /THE VERMONT AIR NATIONAL GUARD /HAS PARTNERED FOR THE 4TH YEAR
WITH /THE UVM COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND MATHEMATICAL SCIENCE (CEMS)
/ to host these one-day engineering activities to celebrate National
Engineers Week. Engineers Week held nationally the week of February
14 ? 20, 2010.

   The Engineers Week coalition comprises more than 75 engineering,
professional, and technical societies and more than 50 corporations
and government agencies.  Founded by the National Society of
Professional Engineers, the coalition is dedicated to sustaining and
growing a dynamic engineering profession by ensuring a diverse and
well-educated future engineering workforce, increasing understanding
of and interest in engineering and technology careers among young
students, and promoting pre-college literacy in math and science.
Among the oldest of America's professional outreach efforts, the
coalition also raises public understanding and appreciation of
engineering contributions to society through year-round innovative
programming and celebration.
