He Named me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

National Novel Writing Month: Writing Competition

November is the National Novel Writing Month, and to celebrate the MTMC and the Lode are co-hosting a writing competition. There will be two competitions: a short story competition and a poetry competition. Submissions should be no more than two pages in length, and should address one of the following prompts:

1. You are tasked with representing humanity at the first-ever meeting between humans and aliens. What did you say to make them angry and how will you prevent the invasion?

2. There are plenty of stories out there that talk about somebody making a leap into another world. Lucy stepped through the wardrobe into Narnia, Matthew McConaughey rocketed through a wormhole, and Neo took the red pill. In that spirit, tell us a story about a portal: any portal.

3. Alexander Flemming discovered antibiotics accidentally when he found a mold killing bacteria cultures in his lab. Serendipity has the potential to change our worlds in ways we never anticipated, so tell us a story of a time somebody found something they weren’t looking for.

Submissions are due on November 30, and should be sent to mtmc-coach@mtu.edu. The winners will be awarded fabulous prizes and have their work published in the Lode and on the MTMC website! Happy writing!

Speaker and Author Aspen Matis

Mark your calendar to attend speaker and author Aspen Matis on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 8:00pm in Fisher Hall, Room 135. Aspen is the author of the internationally bestselling memoir Girl in the Woods, published by HarperCollins in 2015. The book has been called “a powerful read” by O, The Oprah Magazine, and it made The Guardian’s annual top 50 list. The New York Times named Aspen Matis “a hero.” After being raped on her second night at college, Matis dropped out. Depressed and shocked that her school didn’t believe and protect her, she sought solace in a remote wilderness; she found the Pacific Crest Trail and hiked the footpath’s entire length, over 2,000 miles from Mexico to Canada. www.aspen-matis.com A book signing will take place after the event.

Tech Theatre Explores the Life of Astronomer Henrietta Leavitt in “Silent Sky”

“Silent Sky,” a new play by Lauren Gundeson, tells the story of astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt. The play blends the discovery of how to measure the universe with the essence of the discoverer’s life story.  Set against the turmoil of the cry for social justice at the beginning of the 20th century, the chronicle of Henrietta Leavitt counterpoints the power of a passion for work with the desire for love and family. Please join Tech Theatre for a play that contemplates the life, challenges, and contributions to our understanding of the universe. Ms. Leavitt discovered the first way of measuring the universe, to demonstrate that heavens were larger than the Milky Way, the limit of creation in her day.  Tech Theatre Presents “Silent Sky,” for two weeks, Thursday – Saturday, October 13 – 15 and 20 – 22, in the McArdle Theatre, at 7:30 PM each night.

Attention Student Organization Officer: Funding Opportunity

Cummins, Inc. is offering your student organization the chance to receive funding!  In order to qualify for the funding, Cummins would like each student organization to create a 10-15 minute video presentation based on the template, Cummins Sponsorship Event 2016.  The presentation video needs to be made and submitted to Joe Thompson (josephth@mtu.edu) in the Pavlis Honors College by Friday, November 4th at 12:00 PM.  Cummins representatives will review the video presentations and award funding a few weeks after submission.

Over $5,000 in funds was distributed last year and we anticipate a similar amount available this year.  Based on feedback from last year, a successful presentation is concise but still provides suitable justification for each bulleted item in the presentation template.

Please see Joe Thompson (josephth@mtu.edu) in the Pavlis Honors College with any questions.

Student Organization and Fraternity/Sorority Leaders and Advisors,

If you are looking for a community service opportunity and/or for something fun to do, the Michigan Tech Preschool would like to invite your organization to participate in our upcoming Bounce-O-Rama fund raising event as event volunteers.  This event is open to the entire community – including all ages up to high school and college students and adults.  What we are doing is a carnival-type event where we are having many inflatable obstacles and play areas brought in to the Multi-Purpose room in the SDC on Saturday, November 9th.

We need volunteers mainly to supervise the different areas – things like moon walks, inflatable slides, velcro wall, boxing ring, etc – to make sure the participants stay safe, stay in age appropriate groups, and to rotate participants through according to lines, time limits, etc.  We will train you and it is a fun and easy event.  A large part of our success with past Bounce-O-Ramas has been a great group of volunteers and we hope the campus community can help the Preschool again this year.  A summary of the details is below.

If your organization can participate, please get back to me by November 1st with a list of names and/or a number of volunteers your organization can commit to one or more shifts.  We will need about 20 total volunteers for each event shift and about 10 each for set-up and tear-down.

Michigan Tech Preschool is a non-profit parent cooperative preschool that has been serving the local community and its children for over 50 years.  We hope you will choose to work with us to continue our tradition of affordable early childhood education.

“Leaders in Continuous Improvement at Michigan Tech

Are you interested in Lean, Six Sigma, or other methods of continuous improvement?  Then this newly formed student organization is for you!  Companies from all over the world demand continuous improvement experience to be competitive.
At our next meeting the concept of Process Mapping will be introduced.  Learn how to find waste in processes and improve flow to the customer.  Process mapping is also used by businesses to ensure that they are working effectively (doing the right activities, not just doing activities efficiently).
Feel free to stop by on November 7th at 5 pm, in the MUB Alumni B room, or e-mail our President, Megan Johnson at meganj@mtu.edu
