The Science Program to Inspire Creativity and Excellence (SPICE) will hold the 2nd annual "Science Open House" September 19, 2012 in the Willamette Hall Atrium (6:30pm-8:30pm) on the University of Oregon (UO) campus. Eugene's own SLUG Queen Wannabee and advocate for mad science, Professor Doctor Mildred Slugwak Dresselhaus will be in attendance.
Waves and Light - Take a tour of the electromagnetic spectrum and be a part of the human laser. Learn how to calculate the speed of light with a microwave* and chocolate.
Mix and Fizz Chemical Reactions - Use the power of chemical bonds to inflate balloons. Learn what pH is and explore a number of chemical reactions.
Applications are closed and will reopen in 2018.
SPICE is proven to increase girls interests, efficacy, attitudes, and identities around science! Share the wonder of hands on exploration with a girl in your life today!

In 1942, when computers were human and women were underestimated, a group of female mathematicians helped win a war and usher in the computer age.
The Science of Art
Who says scientists and artists don't belong together! Learn the geometry, neuroscience, physics and chemistry of art. Learn how forensic scientists uncover forgeries (and how to make your own fakes). Improve your drawing skills by tricking your brain. Use origami to solve complex mathematical problems!
This workshop is appropriate for all ages and skill levels at art and science. Come prepared to learn and create!
SPICE will be out in force creating the elusive human bubble, walking on water and doing guerrilla science in the street!
