The Innovation Studio hosts university course visits, tours, RSOs, events, research, individual visits, and much more! Join us for an introductory hands-on exploration of the latest technologies impacting teaching and learning including virtual reality, 3D printing, digital inking, 360 photography, gaming, and more! We are an inclusive space and are open to everyone - students, faculty, staff, and the public. Best of all we are free!
