Tangible Interaction Design Open House

Wednesday 07 December, 4:30-6:30, CFA 211

Come see what students built in this semester's Tangible Interaction Design Studio (see details below).  Sure, you have a ton of work to complete, and deadlines to meet, but, hey -  aren't you at a University because of all the other smart people doing interesting things?   Bring your critical apparatus and spend an hour with us - I guarantee you won't be bored.  Presentations are "science fair" format, so you can browse, graze, chat, and go. 

Eh?  What's this Tangible Interaction Design?   Master program in the School of what?  Architecture?  Eh?  Yes.   MTID Program [Link]

Students: Check the description for next semester's "Skills Swapping" edition.
