Summer Fun and Education at CPMI!

June 20, 2013

Every year, students from various high schools and middle schools come to visit the University of Illinois. Many of these students participate the World Wide Youth in Science and Engineering (WYSE) camps offered by the Engineering College. During WYSE, students explore multiple different engineering fields for tours of the facilities, demos, and experiments. When students visit the Nuclear engineering department, CPMI presents the fundamentals of plasma physics by displaying various vacuum chambers, crushing cans, and launching copper rings using its newly created coil gun.
