Spring 2020 Student Event Schedule



January 27, 2020 6:00-7:30pm

Student Info Session and Pizza Social (RSVP for this event)
Come to this open info session to learn more about HyperX, a new student org for exploring and experimenting with new technologies, and the Emerging Tech Hub at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery. Everyone is welcome. No experience required. We will talk about opportunities for hands-on learning, participation in challenges, projects, and resources to either work on industry challenges or pursue your own interests.

We invite students from all majors including engineering, computer science, business, communications, art and design, physics, anthropology and more. And, yes, there will be pizza.

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!
