The Greensfelder Experiential Learning Center (GELC) is a good place to meet to consider Our Local Area Projects (OLAP) for mathematics students. An April 1997 Saturday session might work for this year.

We can plan by email so let me know of your interest. Is there an interest in meeting in April 97?
