Colorado State University engineering students will showcase their projects as part of Engineering Days April 24-25 on campus.
The annual Engineering Days celebration will include displays of student work and activities for the university and Fort Collins community. Activities will include robot demonstrations, remote control car racing, miniature golf and a picnic. All events are free and open to the public.
