Climb our mountain -- for the scientific fun of it all
If you like science and technology, you'll love Simon Fraser University's
open house this fall.
An open house featuring a smorgasbord of science and technology is scheduled
at the Burnaby Mountain campus from 1 to 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 18.
Fun and learning will be mixed and merged through a variety of hands-on
demonstrations and displays which visitors will be encouraged to experience,
poke, prod, manipulate and use.
Some specifics? The following is just a sampling:
Students wondering how they'll be able to attend SFU's science and technology
open house on a school day need not worry. For most area students, Oct.
18 is a professional day. Not only that but admission and parking are free!
- "Dissect" a human body and then put it back together again
using a school of kinesiology computer program.
- Take the Pinocchio challenge. Can you "beat" the psychology
department's lie detector?
- "Track down" a serial killer with the help of a ground-breaking
computer program developed in SFU's school of criminology.
- Attend Virtual-U, a one-of-a-kind cyber-university being created at
SFU, which is drawing worldwide attention.
- Make your very own hologram in a "holo-tunnel" assembled
by the physics department.
- Find out how SFU's V-chip - developed to give parents control over
the TV viewing habits of their children - works and why it's being adopted
around the world.
- Check out the latest scientific tricks of SFU's imaginative and enthusiastic
Science Alive! team. (Bill Nye, Science Guy, eat your heart out!)
