The installation, which uses the spatial audio capabilities of the Cube, will enable visitors to explore an immersive sound and visual experience as they follow a meandering path through the space and listen to Shakespearean texts performed by Virginia Tech students.
Led by Lisa McNair, professor of engineering education, the center helps create experiences, innovations, and opportunities for educators and students that integrate science, engineering, arts, and design.
The Virginia Tech Science Festival returns to campus with free events and activities to showcase unique ways science is the center of dozens of topics, from history and economics to geology and stars, medicine and chemistry.
Free and open to the public, “An Evening with Christopher Emdin: STEM Education and Empowerment for the Rest of Y'all,” will be held in conjunction with the Virginia Tech Science Festival at the Moss Arts Center on Nov. 4 at 7 p.m.
The first ACCelerate: ACC Smithsonian Creativity and Innovation Festival, a three-day celebration of creative exploration and research, will be held at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., Oct. 13-15.
Unlike any music festival in the world, the event features live performances, audio and visual work, and a spatialized presentation of an entire Led Zeppelin album in Virginia Tech’s premiere research environment, the Cube.
The study found that the ability of participants to use a glanceable interface rather than having to log into a website or be interrupted by updates was also key to the success of participants' physical activity.
In order to get a better idea of how the holiday was celebrated in the past, Virginia Tech researchers have created an interactive digital archive called Mapping the Fourth of July: Exploring Independence Day in the Civil War Era.
Industry leaders from Google, Sony, and Microsoft will talk about technology, art, and user experience at the annual event at the Moss Arts Center. The event will showcase Virginia Tech research combining science, engineering, arts, and design.
Luther has been recognized with the CAREER Award, the most prestigious award given by the foundation in support of junior faculty who demonstrate the potential to effectively integrate research and education. He will use an expert-led crowdsourcing approach to collect data to focus on investigations of photo and video evidence.
Crowdsourcing — soliciting large numbers of people primarily via the internet to offer data, services, or ideas — has come into vogue for scientists as a scalable way to collect and manage large amounts of data while engaging the public in scientific research.
