Buchman, who declined the mealworm meal, was one of several Purdue alumni who took part in Purdue Day, which featured more than 50 university interactive booths and displays, performances, and visits from university leaders and some well-known alumni.

Purdue University sophomore Eric Aasen gently lifts sophomore Zheng Wang into the cockpit of Purdue's solar-powered car, on display at the Indiana State Fair today (Wednesday, 8/13) in Indianapolis. The Purdue team finished 13th in the 2,300-mile American Solar Challenge race from Chicago to Los Angeles in July. To keep from damaging the delicate solar panels that cover the car, the driver is lifted in and out of the cockpit. Wednesday was Purdue Day at the Indiana State Fair, which featured more than 50 Purdue interactive booths and displays, performances, and visits from university leaders and some well-known alumni.
