Some examples of CUREE produced exhibits, which often focused on teaching STEM concepts and/or the history of scientific research and development are shown below.
Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation Conference (CMMI-NSF)
At the 2009 NSF-CMMI Conference, CUREE was one of the primary exhibitors in Exhibition Hall providing demonstrations on seismic response in structures to the local school children. This traveling exhibition featured many interactive exhibits that were developed and constructed by CUREE, that helped to demonstrate the effect of the frequency of shaking on the structures.
For this traveling exhibit, in addition to the motorized E-Defense shake table model, a hands-on shake table was designed to help demonstrate the effects of shaking simply using different sized plastic rods and suspended metal weights.
During this 3-day event, Reed Helgens provided hands-on demonstrations for various groups including students from local K-12 schools, as well as for visiting engineering students and instructors from across the United States.
