SSC Pacific at the High Tech Fair
On March 9 and 10, 2010, SSC Pacific participated in the High Tech Fair, held in Wyland Hall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, San Diego. More than 3,000 students in grades 7-12 attended this event where they interacted with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) demonstrations.
SSC Pacific hosted booths showcasing robotics, physics, and computer science, and personnel from our robotics group assisted students with the remote operation of two small robotic vehicles. Students also had an opportunity to engage in Center developed chat software that instantly translated text messages into a variety of languages. SSC Pacific educational outreach volunteers demonstrated acoustic and mechanical resonance using chladni plates, a bowl that spouts water, and singing wine glasses.
