Missouri University of Science and Technology is hosting a Residential College Showcase from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, April 27, at the Havener Center on campus.

Missouri S&T’s Residential College is a living/learning community. More than 500 students are housed in two new residential buildings on campus. Students living in the Residential College are required to successfully complete one learning community class per semester. The courses typically feature collaborative student projects.

Ten of the learning community classes will present projects during the Residential College Showcase. Artwork, live entertainment and student presentations will be featured.

This semester’s classes include: Achieving a Life of Art, Entrepreneurial Scholars, Experiential Design, Honor’s Hall, Global Research, Global Village, Seeds of Success and Women as Global Leaders.

During the showcase event, the Women as Global Leaders class will present information about a recent trip to Guatemala.

The Experiential Design class will display remote-controlled helicopters that were designed to pick up packages and fly them to a given destination -- without being shot down by students armed with ping pong balls. The same class will also have a remote-controlled helicopter competition at 6 p.m. on April 23 and April 30 in the Carver-Turner Room of the Havener Center.
