Auburn University Libraries Offer Second ‘Creative Explorations in Technology and Design’ for High School Students
Body of the review
After a successful first program on October 18, Auburn University Libraries’ Innovation and Research Commons, or I&RC, will offer a second session of their “Creative Explorations in Technology and Design” to introduce high school students to the new technologies hosted in the library. .
The I&RC on the first floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library opened in fall 2020 with new services and programs for use by all faculty, staff and students at Auburn University.
As the newest addition to the Ralph Brown Draughon Library, the I&RC represents a quantum leap in technology offerings on campus. Giving high school students a direct opportunity to learn about these new technologies through the Creative Explorations in Technology and Design program will give students a head start when they arrive on campus as students.
The “Creative Explorations in Technology and Design” sessions provide students with hands-on, interdisciplinary learning experiences involving Adobe teaching, 3D printing, Liquid Galaxy, and Extended Reality. Classes will be delivered by instructors from Auburn University Libraries to a group of 20 students per session, helping them use the equipment and learn valuable technical skills.
Auburn faculty, staff and community members are encouraged to register their students aged 13-19 for the final session of 2021. This session will be held at Innovation & Research Commons on November 11, 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. Cost for one session is $ 30.
