Tech Talk with Thomas Sullivan: 3D Printing & Raised Relief Maps
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Thomas Sullivan, an engineer at General Dynamics, an instructor at Berkshire Community College, and hobbyist will visit Storrs Library and present the science and process behind creating Raised Relief Maps and 3D Printing.

3D printers have become ubiquitous in recent years. They can create a three-dimensional object from a numerical description. This means that anyone with the proper tools and access to a 3D printer can make any ordinary object such as a keychain, crescent wrench or flower pot. With the right data, unusual objects can also be created. In this talk, find out how data collected by RADAR from space or LASERs from aircraft can be used to create raised relief maps of the earth. It’s simpler than it sounds. Come learn how mathematics and software is used to turn raw data into unique 3D printable objects. Please register!

Great Decisions—The Rise of Populism in Europe
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

By James Kirchick

Mass migration, and the problems associated with it, have directly abetted the rise of populist parties in Europe. Opposition to immigration was the prime driver of support for Brexit, it brought a far-right party to the German Bundestag for the first time since the 1950s, and propelled Marine Le Pen to win a third of the vote in the French presidential election. In addition to calling for stronger borders, however, these parties are invariably illiberal, anti-American, anti-NATO and pro-Kremlin, making their rise a matter of serious concern for the national security interests of the United States.
