Champaign-Urbana Cradle 2 Career is a growing community-wide volunteer initiative dedicated to the success of the children of Champaign-Urbana.  We use data and processes to determine shortfalls and successes, align resources to maximize the impact on student success (educational institutions, non-profits, business, faith based organizations, government), and work to get all groups talking to identify shortfalls and successes and to work towards the same goals from cradle to career in a child’s life.

In a glass case in the hallway of Altgeld Hall on the University of Illinois campus lies an all-but-forgotten machine -- a Harmonic Analyzer designed by Albert Michelson to perform Fourier Analysis. This presentation will describe the year long effort to memorialize this machine via the creation of a series of videos and production of posters and a coffee table book. No specialized knowledge will be necessary to appreciate this wondrous machine.
