Local Colleges and Organizations to Join MythBusters at Dublin High School Event

February 13, 2012

Dublin High School’s sold out Engineering Academy Open House starring MythBusters (announced on Jan. 24) just got bigger. Twenty groups including local schools, colleges and Engineering Academy sponsor organizations, will be joining MythBusters stars Adam Savage and Kari Byron at the event. Each group will host an interactive “Demonstration Station” covering science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics. Over 100 volunteers (students, parents, engineers and scientists) are supporting the 20 Demonstration Stations. The event will open with a moderated panel session featuring MythBusters stars Adam Savage and Kari Byron, who will answer questions submitted by local students.

The event will be held on Wednesday February 22. Doors open at 6:30pm and arriving early is recommended. Due to the popularity of the event, only those with a ticket or pre-registered volunteers with badges will be admitted. 1,000 free tickets were distributed in under 36 hours to members of the community via local schools last month.
