Rose-Hulman is bringing back something the school newspaper once called “one of the most important events in school history”.
On Wednesday, the college re-introduced the Rose Show.
It showcases more than 80 projects that students have been working on this year.
There’s a wide variety, ranging from an adaptable wheelchair to a theoretical math idea, to a project about drones.
It’s been 20 years since the school hosted the event. While technology has changed over the years, the college is keeping some special traditions.
“Students in the shops at Rose-Hulman would produce what I’m calling a trinket or an artifact from the Rose Show. Back in the day, the trinket was a piece of metal work from a shop. Now, it’s a 3D printed Rose-Hulman ‘R’, just to commemorate Rose Show 2018,” says Julia Williams, an English Professor and the Interim Dean of Cross-Cutting Programs and Emerging Opportunities.
The event is a learning opportunity for attendees and the students involved. The students even get to vote for their favorite project.
