Student-Designed Winter Light Shows This Weekend
Minnesota Ag Connection - 12/07/2016

Join the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering (CSE) during the final weekend of a dazzling light show designed by science and engineering students. The high-tech light show is bigger and better this year featuring more than 250,000 LED lights set to music, some of which is written and recorded by University of Minnesota students.

The CSE Winter Light Show runs at 5:30, 6 and 6:30 p.m. Dec. 8, 9 and 10.

All events are free and open to the public.

Now in its sixth year, the show has become a campus winter tradition. Lights will surround the semi-circular Civil Engineering Plaza and will be synchronized to music for a 360-degree sensory outdoor experience. Features include a giant 22-foot lighted tree, an 8-foot 3D snowman sign, 18 1-foot-by-1-foot lighted snowflakes, a 3-foot-by-30-foot lighted pixelated changeable sign, and a 6-foot circular light structure. The students estimate that the show includes more than five miles of lights and extension cords.

The light show is presented by the University of Minnesota Tesla Works student group. The show features the technical and creative skills of University of Minnesota science and engineering students and their ability to have fun on campus--even in the winter.

Sponsors for the show include Advanced Circuits, Coca-Cola, Student Unions and Activities Grants Initiatives and the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering. Additional support provided by the University of Minnesota Parent and Family Program.
