Time for Another Round of “Guess Where” ISU Edition!

The Bug

Chances are if you haven’t been on a College of Engineering tour or are familiar with the west side of campus you probably aren’t familiar with this statue! This piece is located just outside the new add-on to Coover, which houses the Software, Computer and Electrical Engineering programs.

Can you guess what it is?

Most people say a butterfly, and although it’s close, the answer is actually a moth! Back when computers were still relatively new (and really big), the first “bug” in the system was literal. We actually get the term from the moth that got trapped in the inner-workings of a computer and caused it to malfunction.
