Ever wonder how a flashing light is built or how to make digital postcards with PhotoShop? Come to SFU's Faculty of Applied Sciences annual open house Saturday, Feb. 10, from 10 am - 2 pm in the Applied Sciences building at the Burnaby campus.

Everyone is welcome — especially secondary school students and their parents — to Discover Applied Sciences, which includes the schools of communication, computing science, engineering science, kinesiology, interactive arts and technology (based at SFU Surrey), and resource and environmental management.

And check out the highly popular TechOne program — an innovative, interdisciplinary first-year program at the Surrey campus that is all about technology, design and people.

The Applied Sciences building's halls will be full of hands-on displays, video games and information booths staffed by advisors, faculty and students.

Take home your own electronic light controller and postcards. See what our student scientists are up to, explore the labs, take in a campus tour or attend a talk on our faculty members' latest research. There's even a free lunch.

For more information, including a location map, public transit schedules, and driving and free-parking directions, go to http://fas.sfu.ca/DiscoverFAS. Advanced registration online gives students two chances to win an iPod, while those simply showing up for the day will get one entry to the draw.
