Summer internship

Recent University of Michigan graduate Sam White (left) and engineering student Erin Alderink visit with Professor Kenneth Lutz of the University of Delaware, faculty member-in-residence for the Washington Internship for Students of Engineering program on Capitol Hill. White and Alderink were among 11 students from around the nation who spent nine weeks in Washington this summer learning about the public policy process. Each student concluded their work with a talk and Q&A session, as well as a paper on a topical engineering-related public policy issue. White and Alderink interned with the American Institute of Chemical Engineers in Washington, D.C., and did presentations focused on energy policy issues. (Photo by Mike Waring, U-M Washington Office)

This Lewis Cross painting captures the powerful presence of an enormous flock of passenger pigeons passing through an area on a search for food. To mark the 100-year extinction of the birds, the Museum of Natural History through January 2015 is presenting an exhibit on the life and death of the passenger pigeon. (Courtesy of the Lakeshore Museum Center, Muskegon)

Agave in bloom

The rare blooming of the American agave plant at Matthaei Botanical Gardens is underway.

View an ongoing photo gallery of the agave stalk's progress, and learn more about this intriguing plant. (Photo courtesy of Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum)
