All About the E

E-WeekE-Week 2008 began with E-lympics and a pancake feed to rev up Nebraska Engineering students with energy to carry them through the week's activities and into finals that followed.

E-Week, in its 95th year as a celebration of Nebraska Engineering, also included such traditions as the "kick-off with a keg (of root beer)" and quiz bowl tournament. The week added some new twists, like a Halo Tournament for fans of the video game.

Friday's Open House concluded this year's festivities, with hundreds of high school students and community members viewing Nebraska Engineering presentations at the research fair and senior design competition. The guests caught the spirit and joined in to design and build ping-pong ball launchers and protective devices for an egg drop off the roof of Othmer Hall.
