Join the Virginia Tech History Lab on Tuesday, May 3 for an exhibition of student projects.

The event will take place in the Newman Library Multipurpose Room from 2 to 3:15 p.m.

History Lab is a new-team taught transdisciplinary course that uses creative technologies to explore hidden histories. As Virginia Tech commemorates its sesquicentennial, student teams have combined their disciplinary backgrounds in history, visual arts, and other subjects to produce innovative exhibits, including a mapping display on a 3D-printed model of Burress Hall; a multisensory exploration of the ongoing Monacan presence in the New River Valley; a 3D virtual exhibit about the original Preston and Olin Institute building; and more.

Everyone is welcome to stop by, check out the displays, and chat with students about the transdisciplinary teamwork and creative processes behind their projects.

The History Lab course is taught by David Hicks (Education), Todd Ogle (Libraries), Paul Quigley (History), and Thomas Tucker (Visual Arts). Development of the course was supported by a Virginia Tech Pathways Grant.
