Get Ready for Spring SIP Fair at UAT

Student Innovation Project Fair

The UAT SIP Fair for student innovation is continuing to advance. This semester, we take a full turn toward the future by enhancing the program to provide a unique experience for all UAT students and employees.

Student Innovation Project Fair

To prepare for the SIP Fair, students explore opportunities and face challenges as they create viable projects. These projects aim to bridge gaps within their fields and outside industries. Throughout the pipeline of project completion, students are connected, coached, and supported through the process. They learn to question assumptions about their concepts and develop skills to move their projects forward, one step at a time. The successes of student innovative projects stem from the ability to self-evaluate the functionality and usability of projects, and to make necessary changes along the way.

Currently, the SIP Fair will exhibit 26 SIP combined on-ground and online projects to exhibit. Whether each of the projects are team-based or independent, all students in the SIP483 sandbox style class format experience working as a team through brainstorming, scheduled peer review, and one-on-one feedback from me and their classmates.

The upcoming SIP Fair for this Spring 2017 semester takes place on April 20, in the UAT Theater. It is an all-day event, starting at 10:30 a.m. through the awards ceremony at 5 p.m. All UAT students and employees are encouraged to join in the Fair and celebrate UAT’s successful semester of graduating students.

During Week 14, the final schedule will be released. Until then keep an eye out for signage, posters and promotion of our valued SIP students and their projects!
