Hosted by Graziano Marcheschi and Wayne Magdziarz. Segment I: Purdue University Calumet and Seton Academy in South Holland are partnering on an innovative enrichment program designed to build an engineering foundation for Seton students. Faculty of Purdue Calumet's School of Engineering, Mathematics and Science will provide university level engineering instruction to sophomores, juniors and seniors of Seton's existing Technology program. Guests: Rick Hussmann; Steve Parker. Segment II: One hundred years ago, when Our Lady of Grace School opened it's doors in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago, four Springfield Dominican sisters were on hand. This year, the school has five sisters working, including the principal, Sister Rita Marie Range. Over the years, 22 girls from Our Lady of Grace have become Springfield Dominicans. Our Lady of Grace saw an increase of about 10 percent to 190 students this school year, and plans to enroll 200 students in the Fall. Guest: Anahi Lazarte. Segment III: For years, seventh-graders at St. Theresa School in Palatine have had the opportunity to demonstrate what they learned about the Civil War during a history fair at the end of May, and often have heard from a Lincoln impersonator. But not all of them got to share their work with producers from the BBC, who were in Illinois working on a documentary about Abraham Lincoln, and to share their thoughts about the 16th president. Guest: Pam Wilk.
