Project 2061 starts NOW.
Design the future!
This is a fabulous and unique interdisciplinary research course opportunity led by the Erickson School. Students in several departments, including ME, IS and Visual Arts and Design can earn independent study credit.
Students will create displays depicting what aging care could look like 50 years from now -- the nursing home room of the future. What technology will revolutionize this care by the time you need it? Students who will work with faculty from interactive design, assistive technology, mechanical engineering, and aging students over the next few weeks to design three different visions of the future of aging.
We seek committed, responsible and creative students from any departmental major for this 3-credit independent study.You must be flexible and willing to start immediately by viewing a series of webinars in the evenings over the next six weeks. Commitment in the fall is Fridays, 3-6 pm until the conference presentation of the new designs on October 17th, with fewer and shorter class meetings for the rest of the semester.
Be part of an interdisciplinary team, present your work at a national conference, and do something fun and creative that will showcase the strengths of UMBC.
