The student exhibits from the Lund University Industrial Design School field trip program are now on display in the library. These students are one of two groups spending a total of three weeks in the library searching the literature, checking databases, visiting with mentors, attending lectures, and developing their concepts. The final piece of this field trip experience was an exhibit in JSC’s Building 4. Now that the student field trip experience is over and the students are returning to Sweden, Larry Toups, JSC sponsor, loaned the student exhibits to USRA-Houston for display. You are welcome to come to Library 2 to view the exhibits and to observe the issues the students addressed. Please remember these student exhibits are from an industrial design program and not from geology, astronomy, biology, or medical programs.
The exhibits will be on display until November 9. Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues. Any visitors to the building are also welcome to view the exhibit.
