42 Hours of Re_Creativity
Our annual interdisciplinary design/build competition is held annually in March and challenges student teams against the problems inherent in waste, reuse, recycling, and reinvention – with projects that range from the practical to the fanciful to the abstract. Prizes from $500-$1,500 are awarded by a team of invited judges from the ranks of University faculty and staff and industry professionals.

Art/Sci Student Residency Program
Art/Sci Student Residency program offers unique opportunities designed to encourage interdisciplinary learning and creative production by exposing students to life and work in an alternate discipline’s maker space – i.e. the artist in the engineering lab, the engineer in the artist’s studio or performance space. Moldwin Prize recipients participate with the lab of Professor Mark Moldwin, which is currently doing work in the areas of space weather and magnetic sensor development. The resident student artist will gain a greater understanding of research methodologies in the space and climate fields, data visualization and communication techniques, and how the collision of disciplinary knowledge in the arts, engineering and sciences deepens the creative practice and production of each discipline.
