Starting at the National Inventors Hall of Fame STEM School with Shammas Malik, we'll walk down University Avenue, across the dividing train tracks, toward E.J. Thomas, ultimately climbing the Polymer Building on the UA campus with tour guide and Alumni Director Willy Kollman. From there, we'll head to Buchtel Commons and learn a little about the campus' past as we take in the statue of John Buchtel before entering Buchtel Hall to learn a little more about the school's history. We'll eventually head back to downtown, showing that the campus and city are not so separate after all.
