A6895: Lights of the Night - Introduction to Night and Astrophotography in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
Ever seen an amazing photograph of a starry night sky? The Milky Way? The Northern Lights? Attend this class to learn some basics of photography and understand how these photographs can be taken under some of the most challenging conditions when the most important element - light - is in short supply.

E6025: Materials Gone Wrong! in Splash Fall 2017 (Nov. 11 - 12, 2017)
It's a bad day if your phone screen cracks, but it's something else entirely if your airplane falls out of the sky. Learn about the science and engineering behind materials failures in history through demonstrations and hands-on experiments. Emphasis on HANDS-ON demonstrations, not a boring lecture! We'll experience first-hand how liquid metals can catastrophically destroy structural materials in applications like space exploration and aerospace. We'll explore how many materials can change dramatically with changes in structure, temperature, and other conditions. You'll walk away from this class with greater knowledge of the atomic structure of materials and a deeper appreciation for the diverse properties of the materials that surround our everyday life.
