MILWAUKEE — The Opus College of Engineering will host high school students from the Learn Deep Milwaukee Zoo Train Challenge program Tuesday, April 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Throughout the school year, participating students have designed a replacement for the wooden water tower that services the steam locomotive at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Approximately 14 high school students will share their detailed designs in the Marquette Visualization Lab (MARVL) in Engineering Hall, 1637 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee.

MARVL contains a versatile large-scale immersive environment that consists of four display surfaces with stereoscopic viewing and motion tracking equipment available.
