Student Exhibits

Last year, TechFair had over 30 student exhibitor booths. Students from all over campus displayed all kinds of awesome technology that they built on their own. Take a look at their incredible work and displays. Photo gallery coming soon.

One of last year's student relations funded projects was a jet turbine modeled by a glass Coke bottle. The goal was to make a working model of a complete cycle where one could see the object completely working and each part of the engine functioning at the same time. Read more here.
