ATLAS is seeking entries for ATLAS Expo Spring 2019, a showcase of innovative and creative student projects, happening April 25, 4:30-6:30 pm. The annual event draws hundreds of attendees from industry, campus and the community and features a kaleidoscope of student projects from web, image, VR, game or animation works to kinetic, 3D, robotic and interactive pieces.
Research projects from lab assistants, studio projects from ATLAS graduate programs, independent projects from undergraduates working with one of ATLAS’ faculty members, or outstanding projects from any of ATLAS’ core or elective classes are all fair game. Past entries have included an Android app dedicated to tackling objectivity in journalism; a wooden musical harp that uses lasers instead of strings; and a fun improv game packaged in a mobile app that privately delivers character descriptions to different participants.
Expo is a great an opportunity to practice presenting your work in a public event and make industry connections. It's an experience you can add to your resume and a chance to be featured in Expo press coverage!
Those wishing to participate must submit an application by April 7, and students are encouraged to apply even if their projects will not be completed by then. Students curious about submitting their work can either discuss it with their instructor or contact Annie Bruns, the faculty curator. For a sense of what other students might be submitting, check out some of our previous Expos.
Free workshops led by Bruns, are available to help you gain the expertise and confidence to present your project, your skills and your professional identity (Pick one of two sessions: RSVP for Thurs 4/11 from 4:00-5:30; RSVP for 4/17 from 2-3:30 pm.)
