Tomorrow is FrIDeATe! Join us this Friday, February 28th at 4:30 p.m. in the IDeATe Fabrication Lab (Hunt Library A5). We'll have food and whatnot but we'll also be giving out some information about working as a teaching assistant for IDeATe courses. If you or a fellow student might be interested in TAing for IDeATe, stop by and find out about the skills that would be especially helpful, what being a TA entails, and what paperwork will be required. Event info also available at facebook.com/CMUIDeATe.
Share Your Buggy Story!
Buggy memories wanted! During Carnival, the Libraries will be showcasing the first exhibition to be held in the newly renovated gallery space on the first floor of Hunt Library. This exhibition, Nuts, Bolts and Wheels: 100 Years of Buggy, will celebrate the history of Buggy through the lens of the University’s extensive archival collections surrounding the event.
In preparation for this exhibition, the University Archives are collecting first-hand stories about the Buggy experience. These stories will be added to the Archives and some will be featured during Carnival celebrations in exhibits, publications, social media, and other venues. If you have a favorite Buggy memory, share it here.
