College Hosts First Sooner Engineering Expo

The Expo will take place in the southwest corner of the LNC parking lot.
The Sooner Engineering Expo is an event for the College of Engineering's competitive teams at the University of Oklahoma to showcase their projects by way of dynamic demonstrations. Come see what we've been up to on Saturday, Sept. 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the southwest corner of the Lloyd Noble Center parking lot, which will literally be buzzing with race cars, off-road vehicles, human powered vehicles, radio controlled aircraft, concrete canoes (not buzzing hopefully), ChemCars and robots, all designed, built, tested and demonstrated by engineering students.

You will see the Sooner Off-Road team with their off-road "baja" vehicle, the Design/Build/Fly team with their radio controlled aircraft, the Sooner Powered Vehicle team with their human powered recumbent bike, the Concrete Canoe team with their canoe, "Wild Mary Sudik" and the Sooner Racing Team with their Formula SAE racecar, "Allison," just to mention a few.

After a short presentation to kick off the event, cars will be driving, planes will be flying, bikes will be ridden, canoes will be paddled and much more. Plan to spend the day with the OU College of Engineering competitive teams at the Sooner Engineering Expo.

The Engineer's Club will be serving hamburgers, chips and drinks from 11:30-1:00 p.m. The cost is free for all students and children; $5.00 for all adults.

Accommodations on the basis of disability are available by contacting (405) 325-9037.
