Speaking of Cooper Union, Rachel Maddow Show!

Genius! Pizza Pulley for Engineering Protesters at Cooper Union covered on Rachel Maddow Show.

Cooper Union history and sit-in, which started Monday, is highlighted during last night’s Rachel Maddow show.

School administrators may begin charging tuition (presently a free education for every student) to make up for annual operating losses. Learn more by watching the Rachel Maddow show here. A group of Cooper Union alumns bought the students pizza and used engineering genius, and a combination of balloons, counterweights and a pulley, to deliver it to the 8th floor of the clocktower.
