EECS Information Tables 10:00am-3:30pm, 2nd floor, Cory Hall Staff and student groups will be available to discuss the EECS program and share what life is like at Berkeley.
Introductory CS Courses at UC Berkeley 10:00am-11:00am, 430 Soda Hall (Wozniak Lounge) The first two courses in the UC Berkeley CS curriculum are CS61A and CS61B . These courses are famously intense, awesome, and unique. We'll discuss the curriculum, how they differ from similar courses elsewhere, and what it takes to succeed.
UCBUGG animation shorts: A decade of great animation and imagery 10:00am-11:30am, 306 Soda Hall Continuous showing of the best animation and images created by the UC Berkeley Undergraduate Graphics Group (UCBUGG) over the past decade.

What Does the Internet Know About You? An Interactive Lab 10:00am-12:00pm, 380 Soda Hall Come to our lab to find out what the Internet knows about you, how it knows that, and why it all matters! Then learn some techniques to protect yourself—and your friends—from sharing more than you want to.
Robot Learning Lab: A Robot that Folds Laundry, High-Fives, and Hugs! 10:00am-1:00pm, Kvamme Atrium, 3rd floor Sutardja Dai Hall The Robot Learning Lab conducts research on artificial intelligence techniques to make robots perform challenging tasks. Come meet the first general purpose robot able to fold laundry and give you a hug as well!
Hackers @ Berkeley 10:00-1:00pm, 246 Cory Hall Check out some of the cool apps and hardware built by Berkeley students and come talk to members of Berkeley's hacking community.
GamesCrafters: Undergraduate Game Theory Research and Development 10:00am-1:00pm, 310 Soda Hall Play some of the 2-person abstract strategy games that students have created for the GamesCrafters undergraduate research and development project.

IEEE Open House & Soldering Session 10:00am-3:00pm, 246 Cory Hall Check out the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Student Branch's Hands-On Practical Electronics (HOPE) DeCal, a student-run class. We will be teaching you how to safely solder and make your own electronics board!
Computer Animation with UCBUGG: An example from start to finish 11:30am-12:00pm, 306 Soda Hall UC Berkeley Undergraduate Graphics Group (UCBUGG) will demonstrate the entire computer animation short film production process in 30 minutes, from idea to final rendering.
Microchips - Heart of Electronics 11:30am-12:30pm, 289 Cory A cell phone today is more powerful than all the computers in the world combined before the invention of semiconductor chips. What is the future of electronics?
Ten Principles for Social Media Privacy: Hear from an Expert 12:00pm-1:00pm, 306 Soda Hall If you're participating in social media, you need to attend this talk. Come learn the facts behind the news: Who's watching who on the Internet, and how you can better protect your privacy.
Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor Demonstration 12:00pm-2:00pm, 380 Soda Hall Ever had a password compromised or forgotten a  particularly secure one? This project aims to render forgotten passwords a thing of the past. Using ultrasound technology, our device produces a 3D image of the fingertip for unique and secure identification. It is near impossible to spoof and doesn't mind wet fingers.
PiE Robotics Demonstration 12:00pm-2:00pm, 247 Cory Hall Pioneers in Engineering (PiE) is a non-profit organization that provides a quality STEM learning experience for students in underserved Bay Area high schools. We run a year-long intensive mentoring program and an annual 8-week robotics competition.
