Photography Gallery Showcase
11/21/2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Carroll photo students will participate in a gallery showing at the end of the semester. Throughout the semester students will create a themed body of work and print some of this work to be shown in an evening gallery event.
Students, family and friends are all welcome at this event. These pieces will showcase their grasp of the photographic principles learned during class.
The theme this year was "My Carroll College." Students will create a themed group of images showcasing what Carroll College is to them; how they interact with it, what it means to them, people, places and things that make Carroll unique to them.
Birds of Helena with Shane Sater
11/21/2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Join Carroll student Shane Sater as he presents Meadowlarks and Marsh Wrens: The Seasons and Surprises of One Place and Over 140 Bird Species. The presentation is free and open to the public!
On any day of the year in Helena - regardless of the season - birds are doing something interesting outside. In March when the sun reflects intensely from the last patches of wet snow, a brilliant yellow Western Meadowlark sings the coming of spring from a high perch. Late May finds six species of swallows darting over a pond, feeding on an insect hatch. On a crisp September morning, robins warn of a Sharp-shinned Hawk high overhead, migrating and alert for an easy meal. A Northern Shrike perches on a twig over a crisp January stream, searching for voles.
Stories such as these are part of the essence of Helena, a particular fingerprint of seasons, birds, and landscape that is unique to our home. For the past two and a half years, naturalist and Carroll College student Shane Sater has been watching these stories unfold on the Sevenmile Creek stream restoration site, only a few miles from town.
Shane will tell the story of this landscape of grassland, thicket, and stream through the birds that live here, based on observations and photographs from over 100 bird surveys. Please come glimpse the remarkable lives of the birds that share this valley with us - and through them, celebrate our shared home.
Math Debate: The Greatest Algorithm
11/21/2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Join us Thursday, November 21 at 7:00pm in the Simperman Hall Wiegand Amphitheatre as Dr. Kelly Cline takes on Dr. Ted Wendt with the question: "What is the most important algorithm of all time?" Part of our ongoing math debate series.
An algorithm is a process, a method for solving a problem. Computers are run by algorithms, which we use to schedule our plane flights, buy things online, and predict the motions of the stars. Come for this fun and exciting public debate where we will decide one and for all what is the most important algorithm of all time.
