Showcasing research, innovation and entrepreneurship

A sus­tain­able urban housing pro­to­type, a sensor-​​laden shirt that tracks exer­cise effec­tive­ness and an inter­ac­tive com­puter game for people with phys­ical dis­abil­i­ties were among the stu­dent and fac­ulty research projects show­cased Thursday at RISE:2012, the university’s research, inno­va­tion and schol­ar­ship expo.

With over 400 undergraduate and graduate students showcasing their research today at the annual Research, Innovation and Scholarship Expo (RISE), it’s clear the Center is onto something — and it’s onto something amazing.
