Student Kick Off Event
Coming to this session does NOT commit you to anything. You are welcome to just check it all out. We also can’t guarantee participation on specific projects but you will certainly be considered!

Come to this session with your ideas to discuss,  meet potential team members, and learn about industry projects or entrepreneurial opportunities in the Lab.  We will also talk about frameworks for the Lab, expectations, and the presentations that you will be giving at the end of the semester.

After the kickoff, selected teams are expected to meet weekly to hear what others are working on, network, and work on projects.
