I met last week with students from the FLC++ and Math & Engineering clubs to talk about a joint project involving quadcopters. Lots of good ideas in the room, and it sounds like a good project is taking shape!
Spent the evening or May 7th at a recognition event for donors to the college. The Innovation Center has been a direct recipient of Falcon Grant monies – that’s how we got the Printrbot – and an indirect recipient in partnership with Geosciences, enabling us to upgrade to a better quadcopter for dolookdown.org. I had the opportunity to explain the various projects, and to talk to Foundation members and donors about our plans to remake the IC as a makerspace. Several seem very excited about the idea!
I got the blog up and running for a new project that Jason Pittman (Geosciences) and I are working on.
The project will help FLC students develop technical geospatial analysis skills and learn contemporary applications of geospatial imaging, and the images will be used for spatial analysis; evaluating landscape changes, hazard analyses, and investigating rural and urban development.
