There might be a few flurries in the air, but Spring really has sprung. And one popular event at Purdue this time of year is Spring Fest. This annual event, which took place this past weekend, is a time for children, parents, students, and people from the community to visit the university and learn something new through fun, hands-on activities.
Set up around campus were displays, contests, and demonstrations. A few of the events include a cricket spitting contest, equine treadmill demonstrations, and sheep shearing. Not only is it a great experience for the kids (or adults), but Spring Fest is also a chance for Purdue students to share knowledge that they are passionate about. If you missed this great event, or are already looking forward to the next one, the next Spring Fest will be held April 18-19, 2015.
Because I couldn’t be there, I relied on Twitter to see everything that was going on. Here are some of my favorite Tweets from the event:
