Science Café in Fargo - TONIGHT!

The NDSU College of Science and Mathematics announces Science Cafe

A first ever Science Cafe will be held on Thursday, October 30th, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the Stokers Lounge located in the lower level of the Hotel Donaldson, downtown Fargo.
Dr. Benton Duncan, Professor of Mathematics, will host the discussion, entitled "North Dakotans Matter More than Californians: Your Power and the Electoral College."

Is it fair that California has 55 electoral votes and North Dakota has 3.
We will examine a mathematical measure of voting power which suggests that it isn't fair--to Californians.
We will also discuss the practical aspects of this measure of voting power.

The Science Cafe is sponsored by the College of Science and Mathematics and the Hotel Donaldson, and attendees must be 21 or older.
