The second annual Engineering Open House was held on the 1st and 2nd of March, 2013. This year, the event had a more diverse set of activities and demonstrations that were created to engage both K through 8th grade students and their families.  The event on day one was called the Field Trip Day starting from 9 am to 3 pm. It was designed to involve students from grade 3 and upwards in engineering sciences and math and give them a peek into the life of an engineer. While day two was called the Family Day starting from 9 am to 9 pm. In addition, Fulton Engineering organized the VEX Robotics Tournament that had student participants from middle school, high school and college; the Night of the Open Door organized by Arizona SciTech Festival and Emerge 2013 organized by the Arts, Media and Engineering department at ASU.

The Sensor Signal and Information Processing (SenSIP) Center that houses research in DSP, Communications and Sensor Networks, demonstrated new technologies in sensor networks and interactive software on the iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices.

The objective was to provide students with a way to relate to real-world applications where signal processing plays a crucial role. Students came forward to dabble with the iJDSP and AJDSP apps and were fascinated by the signal visuals and sounds. Furthermore, a demonstartion on interfacing accelermoters with the AJDSP software application was also showcase. The kids were excited to observe the change in the signal waveforms based on the movements of their hand holding the accelerometer. Graduate students from the group of Prof. Andreas Spanias were involved in the demonstration of the iJDSP and AJDSP applications. All the participants were keen on downloading the iJDSP application from the iTunes App store.
