CSE Winter Light Show Premiere

Don’t miss this on-campus winter tradition! The CSE Winter Light Show is a student-designed 3D outdoor experience featuring more than 250,000 LED lights set to music, some of which is written and recorded by University of Minnesota students. Now in its seventh year, the CSE Winter Light Show has become an annual campus tradition. This year the shows are bigger and better than ever!

Shows are at 5:30, 6, and 6:30 p.m. The show will last about 15 minutes.

The shows are free and open to the public.

The Winter Light Show is presented by the Tesla Works student group and sponsored by the College of Science and Engineering with additional support from the University of Minnesota Parent and Family Program.

IMA Public Lecture Series

Snow Business: Scientific Computing in the Movies and Beyond

Speaker: Joseph Teran, University of California, Los Angeles

Applications of scientific computing for solid and fluid mechanics problems include simulation of virtual materials in visual effects for movies and virtual surgery. Both demand physically realistic dynamics for materials like water, smoke, fire, and soft tissues, with each requiring new algorithms. Teran will speak about the simulation techniques required in these fields and share some recent results, including: simulated surgical repair of biomechanical soft tissues; extreme deformation of elastic objects with contact; high resolution incompressible flow; and clothing and hair dynamics. He will also discuss a new algorithm used for simulating the dynamics of snow in Disney’s animated feature film Frozen.

IMA lectures are free and open to the public.

McNamara Alumni Center

Mechanical Engineering Robot Show

For six weeks, the 210 college students in the introductory design course in Mechanical Engineering design and build their own robot. Their task is to create a machine which “does something useful.”

The results of their efforts will be on public display at the Robot Show. It is the largest collection of robots assembled in one place in the Twin Cities and is fun for kids of all ages. It is run like an open house, so come for any or all of it. We invite you to join us for this exciting event.

The show is free and open to the public.
