Mini Informatics Showcase Displays Maxi Inventiveness

 

ALBANY, N.Y. (December 16, 2015) — As informatics students have for each semester over the last two years, this year’s cohort recently showcased terabytes of creativity at the Informatics Mini Showcase.

The array of presentations, which gave newer informatics student an idea of the limitless possibilities the field offers, included class projects, internship and community service experiences, independent studies, and research. Several students used the Showcase to present their final research topics to their professors, gaining both experience in presenting and feedback on where to improve.

Displays and demonstrations ranged from a custom-designing a hand for a local recipient who lost the use of his fingers in an accident, to an investigation of the relationship between self-esteem and cyberbullying, to a study on how data analysis has changed the general managership of sports teams.

There was also tabling, with student groups and instructors talking about upcoming classes and presenting ideas on other entertaining, informative and technology-based showcases to come.
