Innovation From Day 1: Provost Challenge

Each semester, Provost Dr. Dave Bolman presents new students with a challenge their first week of college, hence the Provost Challenge.

The goal is to have new students show off their creativity and innovation by making something cool and complete. Yes, that project description is vague on purpose, in order to allow students the freedom to unleash their ideas, mix that with the technology we have and find out what their technology savvy minds can do!

This semester was particularly cool as three groups of students presents some really awesome projects.
