TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It is a busy day for engineering students at the University of Arizona, a chance to show the public what they have been working on all semester. 

Sparks are flying this morning on the University of Arizona campus, for the past year more than 300 engineer students have been working on some 'out of this world' technology and today they get to show it off. 

Some of the designs include a robotic lawn mower and a turbine powered hybrid car.  One team even built an astronaut suit that could slow down bone and muscle loss for people in space.

The really cool thing is that some of these creations could potentially go on to be real commercial products.  Many of the students will be graduating in just a couple of weeks and they say hands on work like this helps set them up for success.

For those who have never been to Engineer Design Day, stop by and check it out.  It is happening on the U of A Mall in front of Old Main, starting at 10 a.m. this morning.  Awards for projects will be handed out at 4 p.m.
