Public Outreach at SPINLab
Spinlabbers share their research with the general public every Fall during Exploring Your Universe, a day-long event on UCLA’s campus where science enthusiasts of all ages can participate in hands-on science activities. Last year, the UCLA SPINLab hosted a “Build Your Own Hurricane Exhibit” where kids could observe fluid dynamics in action.
For those who missed the event, don’t forget to check out a series of outreach films created by the UCLA SPINLab that beautifully demonstrate various phenomena in fluid dynamics.
