This spring semester students in ARCH 132 collaborated with staff members from the Center for Academic Computing (CAC) to design and implement a variety of innovative artifacts to support information technology at Penn State. To cap-off the semester, the ARCH 132 students will demonstrate a number of the completed projects including: a mobile technology cart that incorporates wireless network technology and laptop computing to permit indoor/outdoor technology classroom experiences; express access kiosks for the HUB; technology lecterns and podiums for classrooms; a media kiosk for the Computer Building; and special furniture to support individual and collaborative computing in student computer labs. The hands-on design studio was developed by Professor James Kalsbeek to help students hone their client interaction and design skills as well as enhance their understanding of construction materials and fastening techniques.
