 On February 22, 2020, Binghamton University hosted it's Annual Day at the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City. The IEEC and students from the Mechanical Engineering Department demonstrated the use of a 3D Printer and the possibilities of what could be created with such equipment. Parents and children who stopped by were able to take home fun 3D printed trinkets.

This event opens the door for the community to have a glimpse of the kinds of research and programs taking place at BU, as well as inspire children through exposure to different disciplines that they could potentially pursue in the future.
