Want to learn more about Arduino? Dive into Arduino programming by building a robot with Alex Carrillo, BR ‘16 and CEID design aide. In just 2 hours, you will learn how to sense and react to stimuli from the physical world using the Arduino microcontroller, and be inspired by the endless capabilities of physical computing. No experience necessary, but curiosity and enthusiasm for hacking preferred.
Ever drive down the street and wonder what was going on under the hood of your car? Ever wonder what your mechanic is talking about when you hear the words “crankshaft,” “piston,” or “you were supposed to change your oil 20,000 miles ago”? CEID Undergrad Aides Genevieve Fowler and Riley Rice are here to teach you the inner workings of a four stroke engine. Each attendee will be given an engine and the basic tools necessary to completely disassemble and reassemble the engine while learning about how each part comes together to help push you down the road.
Still working on that costume? Have an idea for a costume? Hungry for some sweet treats? Just need a break? Come by the CEID for candy, snacks, and music for an early Halloween! CEID staff will be on hand with materials and costume help -- sewing, laser cutting, etc.
Want to learn more about what it takes to create the objects you interact with every day? Join us for a special screening of Objectified in the CEID! There will be a talk-back with CEID Assistant Director Dr. Joseph Zinter after the film. Popcorn and refreshments will be served!
About the movie: “Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them -- what can we learn about who we are, and who we want to be, from the objects with which we surround ourselves?”
The Office of Career Strategy and the Yale School of Engineering are hosting a Peer-to-Peer Student Networking Night on Wednesday, January 28th at the Center for Engineering Innovation & Design from 6-8pm! Undergraduate Seniors & Graduate Students in the various Engineering majors will be present to speak with Sophomores and Juniors regarding their internship, research, and job hunting experiences.
Seniors & Graduate Students, be ready to share your stories and resources! Sophomores & Juniors, come prepared to ask questions and gain valuable insight! This is a low key affair, aimed at allowing students to network with peers. Snacks will be served!
Warm cookies, cold milk. What more can we say?
Finals season got you down? Stop by the CEID on Wednesday April 29 for an Insomnia cookies-and-milk study break! Eat, drink and be merry until we run out of food!

Interested in engineering, architecture, forest management, and sustainable sourcing? Come to the CEID for an informal talk with plenty of interactions with one of North America’s leading timber engineers and members from a Yale alumni-led fabrication shop. Together, they are teaming up to lead a small timber building design for the Yale-Myers Forest. This talk is part of a timber-framing seminar series on the designing and building process focused on modern timberengineering and sustainable wood sourcing. It is a broad and photogenic survey of the top ten trends in modern timber engineering practice and their applicability to sustainable forest management.
Data Hack 2015 is a hackathon to bring together cutting-edge research and next-generation information communication. We're pairing Yale researchers with designers, programmers, and writers and marketers to make data come alive through creative visualization and interactive design. Whether you have a dataset you'd like to present or are interested in being a member of a collaborative data team, sign up today to get hacking!
We welcome creative types of all kinds. We mean it. No visualization technique is off limits - so painters, interpretative dancers, and storytellers, please join us!
