It’s not the first time the university has invited Houstonians inside the hedges for a taste of Rice. From the 1920s through the 1950s, students hosted the Rice Engineering Show, where thousands of attendees marveled at innovations of science and engineering. This week’s UnConvention marks the first time in more than 40 years that Rice will host an open house to all Houstonians. From a display of inventions by student engineers and an Asian Film Festival, to Shepherd School of Music concerts and a lecture about the role of civic scientists, the UnConvention will give campus visitors several days of many ways to educate and entertain themselves.
