Google Earth guru, KU grad to speak at Engineering Expo

One of the creative forces behind Google Earth, KU engineering graduate Brian McClendon, will return to his alma mater to kick off the school's Engineering Expo for elementary and high school students.

McClendon, a Lawrence native, was instrumental in placing  KU as the opening destination of Google Earth, the popular geographical information tool.

The expo, a free and public two-day celebration of engineering and computer science, usually draws between 1,000 and 2,000 visitors.  It will be Feb. 23 and 24, during National Engineers Week.

Displays and hands-on activities at Eaton and Learned halls are open 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 23 and 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 24. All are welcome to view the action.

There will be several design contests, and visitors will be able to take part in a variety of themed activities. Top high school seniors in the state who've indicated a desire to study engineering or computer science at KU will be recognized Saturday.

KUEarth: New campus maps now online

It also is being integrated with the online campus building directory to provide information about each building's mailing address, abbreviation, occupants and description. More features will be added later. Feedback is welcome and may be sent to
