A small team of students and professors at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology made history this spring when they successfully launched and landed a concrete model airplane.  The effort was part of a senior design project that included input from both civil and mechanical engineers. SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray has more on today’s Dakota Digest.
