Michigan engineering students pay it forward with #Windspiration! How a student group challenged elementary kids to make a turbine!
Reading about wind power in front of a refinery…nice! “Taking a break from the refinery in Oklahoma for some reading.” via @NGSyal on Twitter Incoming freshman are reading “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” as part of the Michigan Engineering Common Reading Experience. Ever read it? Have any other summer reading suggestions? #UmichEnginRead

3 weeks down and only 3 more here in the Basque Country. Our group of Wolverines started in San Sebastián, which is located on the northern coast about 30 minutes from the French border. During the first three weeks we had class at TECNUN, the engineering school of Universidad de Navarra. Our group of 27 separated into 3 classes: Product Design, Renewable Energy, and Micro-robotics. After our two weeks of these classes, we took a week to visit and tour Spanish companies near San Sebastián, like Danobat and Volkswagen. Now, we have all traveled down to Pamplona, about an hour and a half from San Sebastián, to take a Spanish language and culture class. We have only two weeks here in Pamplona, and then a final week in San Sebastián before we finish our trip. Of all the pictures we have taken, this is just a few to show the beauty of the Spanish landscape. The first is a sunrise picture from the beach in San Sebastián, and the others are from a hike that most of the micro-robotics crew went on, guided by our local amigos Amets Charton y Edu Muñagorri. Hopefully the rest of our trip goes smoothly. More pics and info to come.
