'I'VE BEEN SLIMED!'--Senior Lauren Mangiola found herself in a sticky situation when she showed off her slime project at an exhibit put on by the student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Other products that students demonstrated how to make were Silly Putty and a water-purification system. The February 24 exhibit was presented as part of Engineering Week. Mangiola, also vice president of the student chapter of AIChE, explained the purpose of the event: "Engineers out in the world make things that affect our lives every day. So we would like to get nonengineering majors more aware of what we do for them."
