Innovation Zone (LCIZ)

The Learning Community Innovation Zone (LCIZ) held it's first maker workshop Sunday with a rocket building and launching event. On Wednesday the LCIZ hosted another workshop which featured Halloween mask making. The workshop was led by a Puppetry student, Isaac Bloodworth, where the group learned techniques in making masks out of burlap.  If you are interested in future workshops in topics such as; Google Cardboard, Dinnerplate Hovercrafts, and Scribbling Machine, be sure to check your emails! 

Monday, October 24, the LCIZ kicked off open hours where LC students could utilize the space for academic and personal projects.  The space will continue to be open Monday-Friday 12-5 p.m. throughout the course of the Fall semester.
If you would like to take advantage of the LCIZ open hours (Monday-Friday 12-5 p.m.), please be sure that you complete the safety training, which can be found on HuskyCT.  If you cannot find the safety training on your HuskyCT, or if you have ideas of workshop topics, please contact Cody Ryan at cody.d.ryan@uconn.edu.

Interest Survey:
Learning Community Formal 

The Learning Co mmunity Executive Council wants to hear from you!  The council has been coordinating Learning Community-wide programming and is looking to further enhance opportunities for students.  One idea that they were interested in is potentially hosting a Learning Community Formal in the Spring semester.  This event would be a social activity where students across all Learning Communities can get dressed up and have a fun time. Please share your feedback about this idea on this interested survey:
