There are a couple bonus Thursday events this week.

Why Go: Twenty-four teams of students from all over the state designed wind turbines for this second-annual competition at SES on Saturday. Not only can you check out the fruits of their labors, but there will be exhibits and activities from Leonardo's Basement, Bakken Museum, SheerWind, the SES Foundation and Innovative Engineers from the University of Minnesota.

Cost: Free


When/Where: 7 p.m. Thursday;

Why Go: Hear stories and see images from the author and photographer of the companion book to the IMAX movie To The Arctic 3D, playing now at the Great Clips IMAX. Born in Germany, Schulz hopes to inspire individuals to take action to protect endangered ecosystems and wilderness areas.
