How does a civil engineer take materials and make them into a strong building? How do they take make a weak material like piece of paper strong enough to stand up?
UMD students Phil Koktan, Chelsea Hanson, Tyler Reich, and Zach Schmitz will show how! Civil engineering students will explain and demonstrate the concepts of height, durability and other engineering concerns. Two teams will be selected from the audience to compete. Each team will use sheets of paper to try and construct the tallest freestanding tower.

Author Linda LeGarde Grover discusses her book The Dance Boots with Access Minnesota Radio
Linda LeGarde Grover has written a collection of short stories that illustrate the beauty and the struggles of the Ojibwe way of life. In a set of linked family stories, tribe, culture, language and family are celebrated, often in contrast with the white way of life. The book, which received the celebrated Flannery O'Connor award, spans several generations and is rich in the storytelling tradition. Grover is a member of the Bois Forte Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe in northern Minnesota.
