Can UC It Fly!

We welcome our guests, young and old(er), to our newly refurbished lab space (re-opened in January 2018). The KidsFest event “Can UC It Fly” is designed to give children a first-hand experience in one of Mechanical Engineering’s core discipline - Fluid Dynamics. Throughout the course of the event we will demonstrate how to make flow visible and discuss what makes things fly? The event includes building a glider, using modern manufacturing processes such as laser cutting and 3D-printing, which the participant will then be able to take home.

The event is designed for 7-12 year olds. Parents or caregivers are welcome to stay or to just drop-off and pick-up their child(ren).

See you at KidsFest!
