Engineers Week Proclamation

Ready, Set, Create!

In February, 2019, we learned about cleaning up polluted water, and built our own filters.  Our favorite librarian, Judi Koch, had lots of materials like sand, coconut fiber, and activated carbon to try.  Check out our filters here:

We had a great time at the High Plains Library building bridges with grade schoolers in November, 2018!  Check out these structures!

Thank you to Victor Sam for this great shot from the CSU Engines Lab tour!

The Engines Lab is in the old CSU Powerplant Building.  Research is ongoing into engine efficiency, as well as other forms of combustion, such as cook stoves for developing countries.  Along with the lab, the building houses a business incubator with offices for start-ups.
