    Keep on Trekking

    How do you get to wow? With Michigan Tech students (and increasingly, alumni) in yellow jerseys. Cool experiments designed to make kids give science a second (or first) look. And a passion to take those experiments anywhere in the country. It's Mind Trekkers. "It's not about getting people to say Michigan Tech is where they want to go to college, it's getting them to say, 'I've found my calling. This is what I want to do with my life,'" Kangas says.

On the cover: The Wow Factor—Explosions. Bananas. Liquid nitrogen. How Mind Trekkers create a love for science in the next generation.
