Technology Showcase

STELAR provides a showcase of new technologies for faculty to experience hands on to imagine the Academic possibilities. After we have highlighted a technology, we work to place it the hands of faculty eager to delve more deeply into it and then come back and present what they’ve learned to their fellow faculty members.

Our current showcase highlights virtual and augmented reality. Come test out the latest equipment and help us learn how it can impact your teaching and research.
