HELENA — What does honey bee health have to do with human health? How can a playground swing lead to independence from non-renewable energy? What can hawks tell us about the health of our environment? These are just a few topics researchers from Montana universities will discuss during Montana’s Research Roadshow. 

Presented by the Montana University System, the October roadshow features dynamic speakers traveling to 25 Montana towns to share 10-minute research stories. Speakers on the roadshow hail from every public Montana university, and presentations will cover a wide range of topics, including tiny houses, space travel, suicide prevention and cancer research.

“Montana’s universities innovate,” said Commissioner of Higher Education Clayton Christian. “They address problems and questions important to every corner of the state. We are very happy that folks from around Montana will hear a sample of the brilliant work being done by our faculty and students.”

The roadshow consists of four tours, each taking place over a three-day period. 

The roadshow starts Oct. 3 in Great Falls. On Oct. 4, the tour continues with stops in Conrad, Shelby and Havre. On Oct. 5, the roadshow will be at Aaniiih Nakoda College in Harlem, as well as in Malta and Lewistown.

Thursday’s presentation in Havre will start at 5 p.m. in Montana State University-Northern’s Hensler Auditorium in the Applied Technology Center.

Friday’s tour kicks off at 9:30 a.m. at Aaniiih Nakoda College on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation.

The tour continues across the state through Oct. 26.
