The Bucknell University College of Engineering will hold its annual design expo on Friday, April 29, from 3 to 5 p.m. on the science quad, located between the Dana Engineering and Olin Science buildings (view campus map). This event is free and open to the public.

Each year, every graduating engineer takes part in a senior design experience, resulting in a plan, device, innovation or design to meet the needs of a client. A sample of this year's projects includes:

- A series of wearable devices that can remotely activate a musical instrument, measure the impact of an on-field collision, and even detect whether one's exercise form is up to snuff.

- Processes to age whiskey more quickly.

- Networks that send early-warning flood notifications to an area's officials and residents.

- A device that produces potable water from atmospheric air.

This year, the sponsors and clients with whom the students worked include Corning, Cytec, Frito-Lay, Geisinger Health System, General Electric, Procter & Gamble and the Bucknell University Small Business Development Center (SBDC).

Please note that because of intellectual property rights, a select number of projects will be located in a restricted area and viewable only to those who sign a nondisclosure agreement.

For a complete listing of projects, or for for more information on the event, please contact Professor Margot Vigeant, associate dean of engineering, at or 570-577-1646
