Event to showcase Iowa Wesleyan College student projects

Written by on April 5, 2013 in News

The Student Showcase at Iowa Wesleyan College will be held on Thursday, April 11, beginning at 11 a.m. in the Atrium of the Howe Student Activity Center. A variety of student projects, including service-learning and research, will be on display. Students will be available to discuss their projects and answer questions.

Approximately 70 students will have exhibits.

The event is open to the public.

In an effort to raise awareness about poverty issues in our community and around the nation, two Iowa Wesleyan College students have worked with the IWC Service-Learning Office to organize a cardboard campout and design competition.

Student teams are invited to create innovative cardboard camping structures, starting at noon on Wednesday, April 10, near the Belle Babb Mansfield statue on the west side of campus. Structures must be finished by 3pm.

The “winning” structure will be determined through a penny war. The winning team will donate all funds collected to the non-profit of their choice. Bonus points will be added to the team that also incorporates Spring Thing’s beach theme into their structure.

Each team will be given some basic supplies to work with but teams are encouraged to bring their own recyclable materials to include in their creation. We encourage teams to include information about poverty issues and their chosen charity into their creation. Teams are welcome, but not mandated, to actually camp overnight in their structure.

We encourage campus clubs, classes, sports teams, and groups of friends to get involved!
