We will resume our Ted Talk & Discussion interest group this week on Sunday, 10/13, from 3-4pm Location is TBD, but will likely be in a classroom at Barrows Hall.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design and it is a conference that includes talks on many scientific, cultural, political, and academic topics. Once a week we will be watching one of these talks on video and having a discussion about the ideas presented in the video.

Hope you're off to a good start of a new week! Thank you for all who came to the Ted Talk & Discussion this past weekend - hope it was a thought-provoking time for you!

IGSM goes Mini Golfing!!

After this upcoming Friday Forum, we will be heading out to enjoy a fun night of Mini Golfing! .

The game uses artificial putting surfaces such as carpet, artificial turf and/or concrete, a geometric layout often requiring non-traditional putting lines such as bank shots, and artificial obstacles such as tunnels/tubes, ramps, concrete/metal/fiberglass forms, and moving obstacles such as windmills. When miniature golf retains many of these characteristics but without the use of any props or obstacles, it is purely a mini version of its parent game

That is right! Come join us next Friday September 27th!
