    Light morning refreshments will be provided.

    This year's events are: 

    1. FERMI QUESTIONS: To estimate the order of magnitude of a quantity that is difficult or impossible to measure.
    2. GRAB BAG EVENTWill be announced the day of the event!
    3. ZERO IMPACT VEHICLE: To design and build an air powered vehicle which, when released eight meters from a wall, will move as close as possible to the wall without touching it.
    4. EGG THROW: To surround an egg with a device that will allow the egg to be thrown towards a wall, without breaking, resulting in the greatest bounce distance.
    5. BERNOULLI BALLTo guide a ping-pong ball through loops using a hairdryer in the least amount of time.
    6. LASER TARGET SHOOT: To position a large equilateral triangle prism on a table in such a way that when a fixed laser beam is turned on, it will hit a fixed target on the wall.
