This globe was a student-built project for the University of Minnesota Institute of Technology in 1993. In Minnesota, over 30,000 children participated in the development and construction of a 42 ft (1:1,000,000 scale) model of Earth. The globe was assembled and disassembled several times, making its way to locations across North America, and was the star attraction at the Earth Day event in 1995.
