HELENA — What does honey bee health have to do with human health? How can a playground swing lead to independence from non-renewable energy? What can hawks tell us about the health of our environment? These are just a few topics researchers from Montana universities will discuss during Montana’s Research Roadshow.
Presented by the Montana University System, the October roadshow features dynamic speakers traveling to 25 Montana towns to share 10-minute research stories. Speakers on the roadshow hail from every public Montana university, and presentations will cover a wide range of topics, including tiny houses, space travel, suicide prevention and cancer research.
“Montana’s universities innovate,” said Commissioner of Higher Education Clayton Christian. “They address problems and questions important to every corner of the state. We are very happy that folks from around Montana will hear a sample of the brilliant work being done by our faculty and students.”
The roadshow consists of four tours, each taking place over a three-day period.
The “Hi-Line Tour” kicks off the roadshow. There will be four stops in the Golden Triangle
