Interdisciplinary discovery doesn’t always happen in the lab. Sometimes it integrates technology and musicians in an ensemble setting to provide live interaction, as in the case of the Boulder Laptop Orchestra (BLOrk).
After computer science doctoral student Charles Dietrich and Associate Professor John Gunther of the College of Music met at a campus STEM poster presentation in the fall of 2012, the encounter led to new artistic collaboration through the College of Music’s BLOrk ensemble.

This also included studying abroad in Chicoutimi, Canada, for a five-week French intensive program.
A team led by the University of Colorado Boulder looking for clues about why Earth did not warm as much as scientists expected between 2000 and 2010 now thinks the culprits are hiding in plain sight -- dozens of volcanoes spewing sulfur dioxide.
With the flip of a switch, a pair of instruments designed and built by the University of Colorado Boulder and flying onboard twin NASA space probes have forced the revision of a 50-year-old theory about the structure of the radiation belts that wrap around the Earth just a few thousand miles above our heads.
The University of Colorado Boulder Police Department is debuting a new time-saving crime reporting option for the public. Bike thefts, criminal mischief and other crimes that are not in progress can be reported at the UCPD website. The new site is not for reporting “crimes in progress” or other emergencies.
The site will allow people to report the crime and incident types listed below.
The University of Colorado Board of Regents on Wednesday voted to approve the establishment of a new Ph.D. degree in Comparative Ethnic Studies at CU-Boulder. The board also voted in favor of new master’s and Ph.D. degree programs in Materials Science and Engineering. The new degrees were added to the more than 180 programs offered at the university.
The CU Police Department honored three officers with lifesaving awards at the annual UCPD Awards Ceremony last week. Two officers intervened as a woman attempted to commit suicide; a third officer was honored for pulling a young man out of a burning car.
Interdisciplinary thinking bolsters innovation. That’s the concept behind the University of Colorado Boulder’s new nLab, a mobile hub that allows students to develop their entrepreneurial ideas through peer and mentor-based collaboration, sustainability resources and other tools.
