Wired! Lab (A233, Bay 11, Smith Warehouse)

5:30pm

Calling all undergraduates and graduate students! Are you an art historian? An engineer? A computer scientist? Something else altogether? If you are interested in applying digital visualization tools to art historical and new media topics, if you are looking for an opportunity to collaborate directly with faculty on a research project, if you want to learn more about project management and leadership, if you are a proactive learner, you may benefit greatly from participating in a Wired! research project this spring.

To learn more about our research projects and how you can get involved, come visit our lab during our Open House Thursday, January 15th, at 5:30pm in the Wired! Lab at Smith Warehouse. Driving directions can be found here. From East or West campuses, you can take the Smith bus to Smith Warehouse, or you can take any of the buses that pass along campus drive, get off at Maxwell Drive and walk up the hill to the warehouse. Entering through Bay 12, you will find the lab in Bay 11 on the second floor.

Independent study and fellowship opportunities are available for both undergraduate and graduate students. To find out more about why you should become part of Wired!, read this.

We hope to see you there!
